Pamukkale, one of Denizli’s most important districts in terms culture and tourism, is home to tourist attractions such as the Pamukkale travertines and the ancient city of Hierapolis, which are registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List as natural and archaeological sites.
Pamukkale features magnificent white travertines which are formed when the thermal water supersaturated with calcium carbonate comes into contact with the oxygen on the surface creating shapes similar to frozen waterfalls and small pools resembling terraces.
It’s an incredible experience to touch the travertines of Pamukkale! The magnificent white travertines are created by the thermal water of the ancient city of Hierapolis, and form the pools where people swam for thousands of years.
If you visit Pamukkale, a site registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List, in the summer months, you can also drop by Gözler, which is located 30 km from the Pamukkale travertines, to smell the fresh lavender.
The Denizli Rooster, the symbol of Denizli, is a native breed which is famous even in the most remote regions of Türkiye for its color, body structure, and harmonious, long, and beautiful crowing.
