MAGNIFICENT PLACE TO VISIT ... TURKEY



There are many places to visit in this beautiful country that is Turkey, a union of cultures and a crossing area between East and West. This country full of natural treasures, great archaeological sites of the Roman Empire, cities full of bazaars and mosques, has long since become one of the most complete and desired destinations for many travelers, so take note and check these places so beautiful that you can visit ...


Istanbul
The best way to enjoy Istanbul is to get lost in the crowded neighborhoods, look for a bargain in one of its markets such as the Grand Bazaar or the one of the species, enter some of the most impressive mosques in the world, go up to the viewpoints, visit the Topkapi Palace, take a Bosphorus Cruise or try the delicious Turkish cuisine, among many other things.
Without a doubt, Istanbul is one of the most essential places to visit in Turkey, as well as being the entrance and exit door for a free or organized tour of the rest of the country's wonders.

Cappadocia
Cappadocia, a region located in the center of the country and declared a World Heritage Site, is one of the most impressive places to see in Turkey and in the world.
This huge area that leaves you speechless for its lunar landscape, dotted with rare rock formations, called fairy chimneys, which have been formed for thousands of years by erosion, is one of the places that we are sure, you will not forget on your trip. Through Turkey where you can also see monasteries and houses carved out of the rock and underground cities, which make it a magical place.

Pamukkale
Pamukkale, a cotton castle in Turkish, is another of the most impressive landscapes and places to visit in Turkey.
Declared a World Heritage Site, this natural area is known for its white pools located on the side of a 160-meter-high hill, which were formed thanks to the tectonic movements that made several mineral-rich hot springs appear. This water has been forming white layers of limestone and travertine as it descends the mountain, creating what today seems from afar, a huge frozen waterfall.
For a time, as a result of the proliferation of hotels and little tourist control, many terraces were dried up and Pamukkale was endangered, although in recent years, thanks to the actions of Unesco and the government, we can say that Pamukkale is recovering.

Mount nemrut
Mount Nemrut, 2,150 meters above sea level, is famous for the giant heads that remain from the burial mound that King Antiochus I ordered to be built in 62 BC, on top of the mountain. These heads belonged to huge statues of different gods sitting on their thrones, which were subsequently damaged by iconoclasts. This archaeological site, declared a World Heritage Site, is without a doubt, one of the most impressive and surprising places to see in Turkey.

Ephesus
Ephesus, a World Heritage Site and one of the best preserved ancient cities in Asia Minor, is another of the most beautiful places to see in Turkey. This city founded by the Greeks reached its maximum splendor during the Roman occupation, of which great buildings and monuments are preserved.
Most of the ruins are found along the Avenida de los Curetes, which connects the Puerta de Hercules with the impressive Celso Library, its most famous place. Other prominent places are the Great Theater and the Odeon, the Fountain of Trajan, the Temple of Domitian, the gate of Mazaeus and Mithridates, the Agora of Commerce and the Temple of Trajan.
