Pamukkale which has been used as a spa since the 2nd century BC, literally means "cotton castle" in Turkish. Fault shifting hot springs water with minerals and calcium carbonate react to create limestone also known as travertine. This is what gives Pamukkale its whiteness and created the pools. It can get quite hot in summer, a hat and especially sunglasses will certainly be very helpful against the sun and the reflecting sun rays from the chalky cascades.
Hierapolis was founded as a thermal spa early in the 2nd century BCE and given by the Romans to Eumenes II, king of Pergamon in 190 BCE. The city was named after the existing temple, or possibly to honour Hiera that calls Hierapolis. Hierapolis became a healing centre where doctors used the hot thermal springs as a treatment for their patients. First century AD golden age of Hierapolis started and Roman batshs, gymnasium, several temples and The theatre built. The town grew to 100,000 inhabitants and became wealthy.
