Pamukkale means cotton castle. Fields of calcium carbonate on the top and side of a mountain are filled with pools of pale blue water heated by the earth’s magma. The water is body temperature, about 37 degrees.
Of course, beside the area are the second century B.C. ruins of the former city of Hieropolis where locals and people from afar took advantage of the healing properties of the water.
We loved it there and took a lot of pictures.
