* Pamukkale (“cotton castle” in Turkish) is the result of limestone formations created over thousands of years. Warm, calcium-rich mineral water from nearby thermal hot springs flowed over these cliffs and, as these waters cooled, they deposited the calcium that we see today, in the Travertines and Pools.
* Hierapolis is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was founded as an ancient healing care center in 190 BC, due to the healiing properties of the waters.
It was one of the most important intellectual, artistic, religious and commercial centers of the Roman Empire. Over time, the city hosted large numbers of both Jewish and Christian residents.
