Pamukkale and the Travertines

 

These are photos of the ancient Roman city of Pamukkale, and the Travertines, a series of limestone cliffs and pools formed by the hot springs located here. Unfortunately for us, they are having a drought in this part of Turkey, so the amount of water flowing over the travertines was pretty low (and not that hot). The ruins were quite spectacular, though, including a 2 km long necropolis and a pretty large theater.

No, this is not a set from the Lord of the Rings...
