PAMUKKALE ON A LIST TO VIST-YOU WON'T REGRET!

.
The healing springs of Pamukkale have cured and revitalized humanity for thousands of years. The thermal waters, truly a miralce of nature, not only embrace the mankind with their restorative power, but, over the millennia, have also created the unique travertine formations that resemble nothing so much as crystallised fields of cotton.
Pamukkale and the ancient city of Hierapolis are listed as a site of World Heritage by UNESCO. Together they form one of the most attractive destinations in the world. Visit the enchanting and eternal city of Pamukkale. You will never forget it.
Brief history of Pamukkale
The ancient city of Hierapolis, situated 20 km. to the north of Denizli, is known in the annals of archaeology as the "Sacred City" on account of its several temples and the other religious structures clustered in the city. Our knowledge of the city's early years is limited but it is known that it was established at the beginning of the 2nd century BC by Eumenes II, King of Pergamum. The name Hierapolis honours Hiera, The Queen of the Amazons, beloved wife of Telephos, the legendary founder of Pergamum. Eumenes II is also renowned as the builder of the world famous Zeus Altar.
Hierapolis maintained its authentic fabric by following the Hellenistic principles of city formation until the Hellenistic principles of city formation
until the great earthquake that took place during the era of Roman Emperor Nero (60AD). The city suffered greatly in the earthquake and was completely renovated, assuming the appearance of a typical Roman city. Following the Roman Era, Hierapolis maintained its position as an important centre during the Byzantine Era. Philip the Apostle was martyred in the city in 80 AD, and the city became an important centre of Christianity after the 4th century AD.
The glorious city was captured by the Turks at the end of 12th century. It has maintained its historical texture and the importance of its thermal waters has never vanished.
