The region of Cappadocia in central Turkey is home to one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world – deep valleys and soaring rock formations dotted with homes, chapels, tombs, temples and entire subterranean cities harmoniously carved into the natural landforms. Cities, empires and religions have risen and fallen around these unique underground havens, and yet it seems they still hold a few more secrets. Archaeologists in Turkey have uncovered another massive underground city in Cappadocia, consisting of at least 7 kilometers (3.5 miles) of tunnels, hidden churches, and escape galleries dating back around 5,000 years. - See more at: http://www.ancient-origins.net/news-history-archaeology/massive-5000-year-old-underground-city-uncovered-cappadocia-turkey-002507#sthash.pG248vj5.dpuf

They clearly spent a vast amount of time and effort burrowing down and carving out this underground city.

I'm guessing it wasn't for the views...

If the earth's magnetic field reverses there will be, for a short time, no radiation protection.

There's only one reasonable direction to move in, in that case. Underground.

Ive been to Cappadocia...and walked the tunnels underground...it is awesome and kinda scary at the same time.

It could be that these tunnels were made to escape the radio active waves of a binary dwarf star... Nemesis.. Which would also help to cause the interruption in Earths magnetic field, and cause us to have even more problems with our own star. Just a possibility..
