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. Plan your trip to Pamukkale and other Turkey destinations using our handy Turkey vacation planner.
