Cleopatra Pools, Pamukkale

3.7
#2 of 11 in Nature in Denizli Province
Swim among the ruins of antique marble columns and feel the "champagne waters" bubbling against your skin at Cleopatra Pools, a World Heritage Site. This pool was shaped by an earthquake in the 7th century BCE when massive marble columns of the nearby temple of Apollo tumbled into a spring. Legend has it that Marc Anthony built a marble portico above the spring, which he gave to Cleopatra. Soak in the warm healing waters embedded in the famous "cotton fortresses" of minerals. Amenities include bathrooms, rental lockers, and a restaurant. Bring your own towel.

  • A mandatory stop in Pamukkale. Relax in the swimming pool after exploring. I recommend a long bath, so at least 30 minute-is not too long. Really worth it to do this a while and relax! You need to have your swimsuit and towels. While things are stored in metal cabinets zipped.

  • Very nice complex. However, the Apollo cafe is horrible and should be closed. I ordered food, tried to pick it up and was denied because I didn’t have a ticket. When talking to the employee who rang me up, he shrugged it off. The manager also shrugged it off. So I ordered more food because I was at a loss of money and still hungry, and they purposely burned my pizza. Horrible restaurant. Also! The cashier lied about not having certain foods. When I called him out on it he didn’t like it at all. And they also didn’t have 95% of all posted on their menu. All they had was pizza, fries and burgers. A bunch of thieves and liars.
  • Great place. But lots of people.
  • Younger at 10 years:) Cool, warm clean sparkling mineral water. R. s. If Tina was removed, which is a tad bit floats it would be fine, but with such a flow of people and without bleach it is clear that it is impossible to:))
