The City is furnished with hot Springs and travertines; traces of the limestone or carbonates left by hot spring water.

As the Left overs of the Spring in the region are arranged in a very beautiful pattern like “Cotton castle” in turkish is called as Pamukkale. Still remain the little unknown wonders of the world since last two milenium. These are formed due to the exessive earthquakes in the past that paved the path of this hot spring to reach top and finally make these structures ou of left carbonates save as stalactile forms in the cave.

07. The Great Dune of Pyla, France: Since Europe as a whole is not known to have any well defined Desert in their territory, Now the title goes other way round with “Tallest Dune of Sand, Europe”. It is exactly located 60 km from Bordeaux, archacon area, France. It getrs its name from the neighboring town Pyla-sur-mer. The correct and the original name of the dune is the “Dune of Pilat”, it is 500 m from east to west and almost 3 Km in length and is about 107 m above sea level. With unclear reasons and the fact that my mind can’t digest the fact that this pile of sand is present in the forest and on the other site it touches the sea the side facing forest is very steep and the dune is famous for paragliding ans sightseeing either to see forest as is much higher than the trees around and also a view out to the sea.
