Day 9: Hierapolis & Aphrodisias

April 28th, 2013

Today we left Pamukkale towards the Aegean Coast. On the way we visited two archeological sites dating to the Roman period: Hierapolis, and Aphrodisias. At Hierapolis, the site was built on a area of natural hot springs which created a calcium deposit region with cascades and warm pools of water.

At lunch we were entertained by a man and his parrot.


Aphrodisias, city dedicated to Aphrodite, it is known for its school of sculpture during the Roman times.  There we saw a theater, stadium, agora, bouloterion, and a temple devoted to Apollo which was turned into a Christian church. Afterwards we visited the museum which contained original sculptures.
