What to Expect
Meaning "cotton castle" in Turkish, Pamukkale can really be called the 8th wonder of the world. This natural formation contains hot springs and travertine, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. It can be seen from the hills on the opposite side of the valley in the town of Denizli, 20 kilometers away.
On the top of this white "castle" which is in total approximately 2,700 meters long, 600 meters wide, and 160 meters high, the ancient city of Hierapolis was built. Here you can visit an ancient Roman amphitheater, the historical museum (former Turkish bath), the ancient Cleopatra swimming pool, monumental tomb of St. Philippe, the magnificent Necropolis of Anatolia, and much more.
Because of the glorious white travertine and historical values of Hierapolis Ancient City Pamukkale was added to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage in 1988.
