Highlights of Pamukkale Tour Schedule: (7:30/19:00) :

  • Pamukkale
  • Hierapolis

Pamukkale’s surreal landscape was formed over millennia by limestone deposited by 17 hot springs in the area.

It has been made eternally famous by the gleaming white calcite travertines (terraces) overrunning with warm, mineral-rich waters on the mountain above the village. Just above the travertines lies Hierapolis, once a Roman and Byzantine spa city, which has considerable ruins and a museum.

The city enjoyed its greatest prosperity during the 2nd and 3rd centuries when, with its on-tap natural hot springs, it became an important spa center. The remains of a grand colonnaded street running parallel to the travertines below for just over one kilometer, extending between the necropolis to the north and a Byzantine church at the southern end.

On a slope above the rest of the Hierapolis ruins is the Grand theater, with its facade over 100 meters long and two tiers of seating, each with 26 rows.

Built during the reigns of the Roman Emperors Hadrian and Septimius Severus, the theater is incredibly well-preserved.
