Pamukkale, which takes this name from its whiteness and cotton-like appearance of its travertines, welcomes millions of local and foreign tourists every year. The unique appearance and health benefits of the waters of Pamukkale are what drive many people to visit here. The thermal water is known to heal many visitors and create a visual feast with the travertines they form.
The cottony appearance of the Pamukkale travertines is formed by calcium carbonate. This structure is initially in the form of a soft gel. It hardens over time and becomes the travertines as we know it today.
The healing thermal water, which has made Pamukkale a settlement center for thousands of years, is also the source of the world-famous white travertines. It is stated that the thermal springs are good for rheumatism, heart, stomach, atherosclerosis, blood pressure, and skin ailments. Some hotels in the region provide services for health tourism with their expert personnel trained in thermal therapy. The thermal pool in Pamukkale, with its 35-degree water, stays stable the entire year-round.
This land where nature and history meet is on UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage List. Pamukkale, which is intertwined with the ancient city of Hierapolis, is 20 kilometers away from the city center. The historical artifacts found in excavations are exhibited in the Hierapolis Archeology Museum.
