Background

Pamukkale is a beautiful place located in southwestern Turkey. It is known for its hot springs and terraced pools filled with mineral-rich water. These pools are called terraces, they were formed over thousands of years by hot spring water cooling and depositing calcium carbonate. Locals and wanderers have been using these pools as thermal baths since the Roman era.

 

The ancient Roman city of Hierapolis, meaning “sacred city,” was built on top of the terraces and was an important center for health and well-being in the Roman Empire. The city contains well-preserved ruins, including a theater, an ancient Roman spa, and the Necropolis, a large cemetery with sarcophagi and tombs.

 

UNESCO declared the area a World Heritage Site in 1988, recognizing it as a unique geological site and an exceptional example of human interaction with nature. Visiting Pamukkale is an opportunity to witness a geological wonder and explore the rich history of the ancient Roman city.
