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. The formations are currently under preservation in order to avoid any deterioration in their natural condition. The Pamukkale travertines, which look like a fabulous field of clouds, offer rare natural beauty, and are a site where history and nature meet.
