Cotton Castle @ Pamukkale
Hierapolis-Pamukkale was made a World Heritage Site in 1988. Pamukkale, meaning “cotton castle” in Turkish, is a city that contains hot springs and travertines, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. It is located in Turkey’s Inner Aegean region, in the River Menderes valley, which has a temperate climate for most of the year. This is a spectacle to behold, with Heirapolis at the top of Pamukkale used as hot baths as spas since the 2nd century BC.
