Hi!

Pamukkale translates to cotton castle. This village is situated in the Denizli Province in south west Turkey.  The cotton castle also called Hot Springs is a mineral rich bath spa completely natural in its  singular beauty.  An unreal landscape with breathtaking views of the village below.

The white cliffs are created by the hot calcium waters which later reach low temperatures forming gleaming white calcium terrace basins and pools. Pamukkale has been considered a spa since the Romans built Hierapolis, ancient ruins that lie on top of the mountain, above the cotton castle. Over the years, it has preserved its photogenic and incomparable natural beauty.

Sicily has a replica of the white cliffs, called Scala dei Turchi which translates to Turkish stairs. A trademark as reminder of the days when the Turks ruled Sicily.

Until next time,

  2. Amazing! I have always wanted to go to Pamukkale. It’s on my list of places to see… luckily, that list is shrinking as the years pass which hopefully means one day I may actually make it there.
