Pamukkale is the “pearl” of Turkey, as it is a unique natural and cultural site. This place includes geothermal springs, a unique landscape and ancient artifacts.

On this place in ancient times was the city of Hierapolis, which was the center of the cult of Cybele. There were unique mineral springs, as well as a deep narrow gorge with deadly gases, which contributed to the worship of this goddess.

Currently, many of the buildings located here are well preserved. Restoration work is also ongoing. Here you can see the ruins of Hierapolis, an amphitheater and museum, as well as a swim in the Cleopatra’s geothermal basin. The main distinguishing feature of this place is the unique calcium terraces, which sparkle with their whiteness.

Pammukale is truly one of the most amazing places! Very beautiful top view and amazing white travertines make you admire what you see! By the way, approaching the travertines along which water runs I thought at first that they would be slippery. But in fact, there it’s even impossible to slip barefoot – amazing! (Translated)
