Best Things to do in Pamukkale

Best Things to do in Pamukkale

Travertine Terraces & Thermal Pools

Pamukkale means cotton castle in Turkish and at this UNESCO World Heritage site there are hot springs and travertine terraces made from carbonate minerals (hard chalk) deposited from flowing water and is where people have bathed for 1000s of years.  Due to the masses of people that now visit it is strictly prohibited to wear shoes when accessing the pools to help protect the travertine deposits.  For further information click

Mudbath and Thermal Therapy Pools 

It is highly recommend you spend a day or at least a few hours to experience this, especially if you suffer from rheumatism, skin disease, eczema or fungal disease. This completely organic therapy is also good to alleviate stress. There are different packages available where the company concerned will arrange to transfer you from your hotel to the Karahayit Red Springs and Mud Bath.

Antique Pool 

Today this is known as the “Sacred Pool” and was actually shaped by an earthquake and sections of the original marble columns are submerged and you can actually lie against them. The 36˚C degree water is said to benefit sufferers of heart disease, high blood pressure, rheumatism, skin diseases and physical exhaustion and can also be drank to aid digestive problems. 

Cleopatra’s Pool

This pool is open year round and is run by a private company. The 36˚C degree thermal water contains bicarbonate, sulphate, carbon dioxide and it therapeutic for bathing and drinking. They do provide changing rooms here but not towels.

Hierapolis

The ancient site of Hierapolis, which actually means “Holy City”, is opposite the thermal pools and at one time or another had pagan temples and Christian churches, attracting many people to bathe in the abundant healing water that flowed here. Most of the ruins seen today date from the Roman period; there are 2 bath complexes and a large theatre that had a capacity for 20,000 people.  Outside the city walls there is a necropolis containing around 1,000 tombs from different eras that range from the grandiose to the very small and simple.

Pamukkale Museum

One of the largest buildings of Hierapolis was the Roman Bath and since 1984 this building has been used as the Hierapolis Archaeology Museum exhibiting collections of statues and reliefs, sarcophagi, architectural pieces, coins and jewellery. The museum also has other works of art here taken from Laodicea, Colossae, Tripolis, Attuda and towns in the Lycus Valley; also on show are beautiful pieces of Bronze Age crafts found at Beycesultan Hoyuk.

Take a tour to the Ancient City of Aphrodisias 

This is a very important archaeological site dating from late Hellenistic and Roman times.  It is famous for its sanctuary of Aphrodite, the city's patron goddess, and for its marble sculptures.  There are many ancient monuments that remain standing as well as a large number of marble statues and inscriptions, buildings and other artefacts.
