Cleopatra Pools, Pamukkale

3.1
#2 of 6 in Nature in Denizli Province
Hot Spring Water Body
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.
