- "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 an Entertainment Complex is built adjacent to the wonder. Pamukkale also provides a major adjacency bonus to Campus, Theater Square, and Commercial Hub districts.
Discovering Pamukkale grants +1 Era Score, or +3 Score if the player is the first to do so.
Pamukkale is a fantastic Natural Wonder to settle nearby, as this Wonder makes it much easier to get high adjacency bonus for districts, the most notable being the Theater Square which lacks natural map bonuses. 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.
Note that the bonus is given to a city when it gains control one of the wonder's two tiles. This bonus is permanent, so losing control of the wonder tile will not remove the bonus amenities. With careful planning up to 5 nearby cities can get the amenity bonus by swapping control of the Pamukkale tiles. For receiving the extra amenity from an Entertainment Complex (also permanent) the city needs to control one of the wonder tiles when completing the district, otherwise the bonus will not be awarded.
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.
