The natural environment has undergone cultural changes and it has come to the present day by taking a shape during the historical process. These are the historical and cultural settlements and they stand out in the historical texture. This geographical outlook covers a large area such as religion, language, history, art, architecture and lifestyle. Inside the world’s cultural diversity, Turkey possesses a very large part of the historical cultural heritage and exhibits the historical city settlements as open museums. The historical cultural texture in the city of Nigde is one of these and historical cultural geographical studies are required in this area. The purpose of this study is to discuss Nigde in terms of cultural geography within the framework of protecting our cultural assets and pass them on to the future generations since Nigde’s historical cultural heritage has not received its due even if it has the potential and this heritage has entered the process of extinction. The historical and cultural textures of the city will be toured and observed by making good use of geographical sources related to historical and cultural heritage issues and by making good use of scientific studies in the fields of history, archeology, art history and urbanism. What should be done in terms of future studies will be stressed by collecting information of the studies done by the city council and city tourism directorate on the textures of Nigde.
