Deriving from springs in a cliff almost 200m high overlooking the plain of Cürüksu in south-west Turkey, calcite-laden waters have created an unreal landscape, made up of mineral forests, petrified waterfalls and a series of terraced basins given the name of Pamukkale (Cotton Palace). Its hot springs were also used for scouring and drying wool. The ruins of the baths, temples and other Greek monuments can be seen at the site. Today, the pool is a site for visitors from all around the world who can just relax in the spots designated to be used, surrounded by the snow white visuals of nature.
