After your time in the natural pools, you will head to the ancient city of Hierapolis. This ruined city was home to the normal arts and sports that were being explored during the period, however, this centre was also popular thanks to the waters of Pamukkale. The mineral water was thought to have healing powers, due to this many come here with illnesses that had no cure, this misconception led to many dying here rather than their hometowns. A large necropolis was created by laying people to rest here. The town also had many bathhouses that used the water from Pamukkale, due to the reputation they were opulent with some still being able to be entered today.
