One of the well – known Natural Wonders of Turkey is described as Pamukkale

The water is reputed to be the beneficial to the eyes and skins to alleviate ills of asthma, rheumatism and dermatitis. It is exhilarating to paddle through warm water while gazing the ancient fragment of columns below the water’s surface. As much fun as the baths are, do not miss to visit the ancient Hierapolis with its Theatre, Necropolis, Roman Baths, Agora. The tour returns over Taurus Mountain back to Antalya, where one can enjoy the beautiful scenery of Mountain Villages as well as the Lake District during the journey.

Pamukkale, 19 km north of Denizli, is Turkey’s foremost mineral-bath spa because of its natural beauty: hot calcium-laden waters spring from the earth and cascade over a cliff. As they cool they form dramatic travertines of hard, brilliantly white calcium that form pools.
Hierapolis Ancient City
The extensive ruins of the Roman mineral water spa city of Hierapolis include a grand theater, a vast necropolis, colonnaded street, baths, and numerous other ruined structures. Pamukkale’s Sacred Pool remains from Roman times, when it was the spiritual center of the spa city of Hierapolis. The modernized pool is Pamukkale’s prime public place for a swim.
