Nature / Park
Swim in the natural hot pools of Pamukkale Natural Park, a World Heritage Site that counts Egyptian queen Cleopatra among its many guests over the past millenia. This "cotton castle" features 17 hot springs, travertine terraces, and the ruins of the ancient city of Hierapolis. Paddle a boat around the lake or take a healing bath in a small mud pod. A museum set in an ancient public bath and the open areas of a library and gymnasium exhibits historical artifacts from Hierapolis as well as some fine examples of Bronze Age craft. Rest at the park's cafe with views of the surrounding landscape. Put Pamukkale Natural Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Pamukkale travel itinerary maker.
