Day 11 April 10

Postby jamesfc on Fri Apr 10, 2009 9:25 am

We left this morning from the lovely lakeside town for Pamukkale. Pamukkale in Turkish means "Cotton Castle" and once you've seen the pictures, you will know why! However, Meli is always full of pleasant surprises and asked if we would like to see a Turkish cavern - twist our arm!

The cavern turned out to be one of the most unusual I have ever seen. It was small, but it looked like an underground version of Pamukkale.

On our trip to Pamukkale, we passed through an area of Turkey where marbled is quarried. The towns we passed through are also known for their textile mills. In addition there are lots of vineyards and even apple orchards! Wld poppys and other wildflowers also grow in abundance, although we are a bit too early in the season for the wildflowers.

We also passed through a town famous for its roses and they make everything from jams and jellies to face lotions, perfumes and skin conditioners from the roses!

Directly in front of the white pools of Pamukkale is Hierapolis, an ancient Greek and Roman village dating back to the 2nd century BC and was used by the Phrygians 100 years before that. It contains one of the oldest and best preserved necropolis in the world and is a UNESCO world heritage site. The city was abandoned in the 1300s. The old tombs leading to the ancient structures were covered in wild red tulips and is really a site. The ancient city was built here as people came from far and wide for the mineral waters that created the amazing white pools.
