Travertine Used A Little Different

We use travertine everyday in our industry but when I saw this story I had to share.

These pools are made of travertine a type of limestone deposited by evaporating water from the hot springs.

People have been coming to soak in these hot springs since at least 200 BC.

Archaeologist uncovered ancient ruins here, including baths, a gymnasium, and a Byzantine Church.

You want to know where you can find these amazing pools……. Denizli, Turkey. They are in a location called Hierapolis-Pamukkale, Turkey. The name of this place means “Cotton Castle” in Turkish.
I wish we could find something like this in the United States. What an amazing find!
