Glittering on the back of the tourist business, Pamukkale became recognized outside Turkey and today it is known throughout the world for the dazzling white color of the limestone thermal springs. The waters include huge calcium deposits and consequently, leave Pamukkale with cotton-like appearance. Due to this fact, Pamukkale earned its name literally meaning "cotton castle".
Beyond the sugar-white face of Pamukkale stands its indisputable role in the healing of diseases like asthma and eye problems. From its very early years the city was regarded as a sacred place for its curative effect and many of notables like kings and emperors of the Roman Empire traveled to Pamukkale to heal. This exceptional benefit transformed Pamukkale into a must-see on every travel route to Turkey.
While touring Pamukkale don't miss its cultural splendor as the city is home to the ancient spa-city of Hierapolis. It means that the area of the city is immersed in the atmosphere of ancient ruins and Roman-style architecture.

Many years before first tourists arrived to the area and UNESCO recognized Pamukkale's appeal, the city had served as a spa resort named Hierapolis. It was of benefit to the rich only, but this secret couldn't be long kept and in 1980s an array of hotels began to dot its waterfront. This was a mistake, and the building boom began to drain away the curative waters.
Consequently, waterfront constructions were banned within the city and today you can profit from a stay in the surrounding areas. Whatever comforts for your stay you wish, Booked.net has a hotel to satisfy even the most demanding customer.
