- "Near the Mesogis, opposite Laodicea, is Hierapolis, where are hot springs, and the Plutonium, both of which have some singular properties. The water of the springs is so easily consolidated and becomes stone, that if it is conducted through water-courses dams are formed consisting of a single piece of stone."
Pamukkale is a two-tile impassable Natural Wonder available in Civilization VI: Gathering Storm. Cities that own at least one wonder tile receive +1 Amenity, or +2 Amenities if the wonder is adjacent to an Entertainment Complex. Pamukkale also provides a major adjacency bonus to Campus, Theatre Square, and Commercial Hub districts.
Discovering Pamukkale grants +1 Era Score, or +3 Score if the player is the first to do so.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Pamukkale is a fantastic Natural Wonder to settle nearby, as this Wonder makes it so much easier to get high adjacency bonus for districts. It combines particularly well with Australia, as they also get extra adjacency bonus from the Appeal next to Natural Wonder, on top of the bonus of the Wonder itself. This is one Natural Wonder that is worth fighting for no matter what Victory route you are going.
Although it is not listed in the description of the Natural Wonder, each Wonder tile provides an extra 1 Faith to Holy Sites, on top of the major adjacency bonus provided by being a Natural Wonder. Therefore, a Holy Site will receive 3 Faith for each Pamukkale tile it is adjacent to.
Civilopedia entry[edit | edit source]
The creation of this natural site took place slowly over millennia, each year growing ever so slightly. Calcium carbonate in the spring water thickens and ultimately crystallizes after the water reaches the surface, forming the hard travertine deposits that make up the stalactites, terraces, and “clouds” that stretch for more than a mile.
