Pamukkale Landscape Protection Park is a true natural wonder. Its name means “Cotton Castle” , which is located on an area of almost 1077 hectares, near the city of Denizli, 230 kilometers from the city of Fethiye.
The peculiarity of this area lies in the fact that geothermal springs with mineral water have been operating here for many centuries.
During this period, unique geological formations appeared – dazzling snow-white potash terraces called travertines, which are the result of a natural biological process.
Nature itself built this phenomenal cultural World Heritage site, recognized as such by UNESCO , with the help of water .
The snow-white Cotton Castle may seem like incredible fairy-tale magic, although this natural phenomenon has a scientific explanation.
Travertines consist of layers formed from successive layers of calcium deposits as a result of the precipitation of minerals during cooling and evaporation of water. Hot water, which rises from underground depths in four sources, has an initial temperature of 35 0C.
Gradually cooling down, while flowing down the slope, which has a height of 60 meters and reaches a width of 200 meters, a precipitate of calcium salts is formed in the water channel, which has a soft helium structure.
Then, as a result of a natural chemical reaction, the gel-like sediment is transformed, from which solid rock and beautiful stalactite patterns are formed.
This is how this unique stone massif was formed, which is an impressive sight with its monumental bizarre shape.
Like drifts of crisp snow under the sun, the cascades of terraced baths enchant with their sparkling shimmer against the azure southern sky, arousing the admiration of onlookers.
The travertines of Pamukkale are part of the Hierapolis Archaeological Complex, which includes the ruins of the ancient city of Hierapolis.
It has been damaged by several earthquakes. The best-preserved antique pool of Cleopatra with thermal healing water, enriched with minerals and having rejuvenating properties, has been best preserved to this day. This is an artificially formed pond with columns erected by Roman architects.
The water temperature in this pool is 36 0C, here you can swim with pleasure, recovering from many diseases. History and archeology buffs can explore the ruins of an ancient Hellenistic city dating back over 2,500 years.
Ancient Hierapolis flourished under the leadership of the Roman Empire, which is reflected in its architecture. Subsequently, the city of Hierapolis became the center of the bishopric in Byzantium.
Walking along the ruins of Hierapolis for about two kilometers, you can go to the largest ancient necropolis of those that are in Turkey.
Many sarcophagi and tombs are well preserved here, and some of them have been skillfully restored. The tomb and basilica of St. Philip, one of the twelve apostles of Christ, were also found during excavations of the ruins of Hierapolis, since then, this place has become one of the centers of Christian pilgrimage.
The excursion program includes visiting many places of the ancient city – the Temple of Apollo, the pagan temple of Pluto, the complex of baths, Roman and Byzantine gates, fountains, as well as the ancient Theater, which could receive from ten to twelve thousand spectators.
These objects were reconstructed by archaeologists over a long period of time, large-scale restoration work was carried out from 1960 to 2013.
