Pamukkale, a world famous natural site in Denizli, combines thermal water treatment with antique city landscape
Turkey’s “white paradise” Pamukkale, a UNESCO World Heritage site, offers unique wellness treatment opportunities thanks to its antique hot springs and mineral-rich thermal pools.
Located in the southwestern province of Denizli, Pamukkale stands over the ruins of the ancient city of Hierapolis.
It has been a spa town and thermal treatment center for millennia since Roman times. It is especially famous for its white limestone travertines, shaped by calcium-rich hot springs.
A natural spring, situated at close proximity to the white terraces of travertine, Pamukkale is particularly popular with tourists. Dating from ancient Hierapolis, this pool was formed naturally after the collapse of a series of columns in an earthquake in 692 A.D., which had caused thermal water to accumulate.
Its water temperature fixed at 36 degrees Celsius regardless of the season.
