Pamukkale and Hierapolis

By  |  0 Comments

The name Pamukkale means “cotton castle” in Turkish. This city in southwestern Turkey features hot springs and travertines, and attracts tourists from around the world. The springs and travertines create a unique and beautiful landscape, and people have bathed in the pools of Pamukkale for thousands of years. The ancient city of Hierapolis was built at the top of Pamukkale in the 2nd century BC, and ruins of the city can still be visited.
