Pamukkale

Trip Planner Europe  /  Turkey  /  Denizli Province  /  Pamukkale

Cotton Castle

A popular spa since the second century BCE, the modern city of Pamukkale continues to draw worldwide attention with its hot springs and travertines--naturally formed calcite bathing pools. World Heritage status makes the area one of the country's most visited tourist destinations, boasting a temperate climate for most of the year. The remains of the ancient Greco-Roman city of Hierapolis sit right above the otherworldly travertines, providing history buffs with a chance to briefly visit ancient times. Pamukkale can get extremely crowded with day-trippers arriving for a quick swim, but you can avoid them by visiting the travertines at sunset, the quietest time of day. Pamukkale is in Denizli Province. Make Pamukkale central to your Turkey travel plans using our Turkey sightseeing planner.
