Pamukkale (Cotton Castle) is about 20km from Denizli. It is one of the most intriguing places in the world - a combination of the beauty of its geological formations and its ancient remains. Waters full of Calcium Carbonate from geo-thermal springs have over millions of years built up deposits of mineral into shapes like frozen waterfalls.

There are pools in which to swim in the mineral water but the favourite of many is to walk down the hill side in the warm water - no shoes allowed so to protect the deposits. A great way to massage and treat weary feet.

Address: Pamukkale
