Located close by the natural wonder of Pamukkale, the ancient city of Hierapolis was founded in 190 BC. Being a UNESCO World Heritage site, Hierapolis flourished under the Roman era. Today many remains can be seen at the museum and outdoors.

Hierapolis also holds a sacred quality for the Christian world because Saint Philip, a disciple of Jesus, was murdered here. Visitors to the famous curative spring resorts of Pamukkale never fail to see this important ancient city.
