Hello there, i’ve decided i’ll start reactivating this blog by reviewing awesome places to draw inspiration from, this is the one i want to start with because it really impressed me when i first saw a photo of it.
The Cotton Castle or it’s translation in Turkish “Pamukkale” is a mysterious place in western Turkey, at first you would think it’s all made of ice, but in reality, the Cotton Castle is a group of hot springs contained in carbonated mineral walls.
With a temperature varying from 35ºC to 100ºC (95ºF-212ºF approximately) the travertine hot springs are a highly touristic place to visit when going to Turkey.
“The ancient Greco-Roman and Byzantine city of Hierapolis was built on top of the white “castle” which is in total about 2,700 metres (8,860 ft) long, 600 m (1,970 ft) wide and 160 m (525 ft) high. It can be seen from the hills on the opposite side of the valley in the town of Denizli, 20 km away.”
As told by Wikipedia
I find this place amazing because visually it seems cold, but in reality it may be really hot, its a deceiving and mysterious place that appears to have come from another planet or from a fantastic story, let me know what you think of it!
