Pamukkale (“cotton castle” in Turkish), is a naturally formed site that contains hot springs and travertines, and terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water
It is located in Turkeys Inner Aegean region, in the Menderes River valley, which has a temperate climate for most of the year.
The former Roman Bath of the ancient city of Hierapolis has been used as the site of the Hierapolis Archaeology Museum since 1984.
Here alongside historical artifacts from Hierapolis, there are also artifacts from Laodiceia, Colossae, Tripolis, Attuda and other towns of the Lycos valley. In addition to these, the museum has a large section devoted to artifacts found at Beycesultan Hüyük that includes some of the most beautiful examples of Bronze Age craft.
Hierapolis is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was founded as an ancient healing centre in 190 BC, due to the medicinal mineral waters. It was one of the most important intellectual, artistic, religious and commercial centres of the Roman Empire.
Over time, the city hosted large numbers of both Jewish and Christian residents.
The Tomb of St. Philip is nestled in the hills behind Hierapolis. St. Philip met his death as a martyr, and in honour of his service to God, the Christians erected a matyrium over the site of his tomb. Special ceremonies and meetings were held here in the name of St. Philip.
After the tour, you will be transferred to your hotel at about 06.00 pm or we can drop you off downtown.
