The Region of Travertine Classic

Updated:2012-12-14 11:31:30
The Travertine Classic stone is mostly extracted in the province of Denizli, in the south of Turkey. The city was formerly known as Denizli Ladik, meaning “Laodicaea on the sea/lake”, but the town is not on the coast. The name developed through several spellings and may have referred to the abundance of underground water sources or the city’s location on the way to western Turkey’s lakes region nearby.

The area has been occupied since prehistoric times, there were important ancient Greek and Roman towns nearby, which persisted through the Byzantine period.

However, the Denizli province is mostly known for the Pamukkale, meaning “cotton castle” in Turkish. This is a natural site in Turkey and contains hot springs and travertine, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. Pamukkale’s terraces are made of travertine, a sedimentary rock deposited by water from the hot springs. In this area, there are 17 hot water springs in which the temperature ranges from 35 °C (95 °F) to 100 °C (212 °F).

This area is also known for its Travertine quarries, where several variations of this well-known natural stone are extracted.
