Valley of the Mills

Nature has overtaken this time capsule of buildings set below the heart of Sorrento. It is very interesting to look at and offers a rare peek into the past.

Stumbled across this old Mill.. which enchanted me as I was not looking for it.. I could have looked at it for a long time but actually just took a few photos from the road above and paid nothing..

This gulch is located at the edge of our hotel, Hotel Antiche Mura, and is quite fascinating in that you can see how life down there must have been. Simply head south from Piazza Tasso and you will come upon it within two minutes walk. I am afraid of heights so it is difficult to look down from the edge,... More

You could see this as a big hole in the ground with a derelict building crouching at the bottom. Indeed that is all it is. Yet it is lovely. The gorge has become overgrown with plants (and one guesses is teaming with animal life too) and the mill with the mill race provide a stark reminder of how well nature... More

Popped by this place as it was so central to the town. A very interesting little spot to see, completely unexpected in comparison to the other surroundings. It was a nice juxtaposition to see how nature was slowly reclaiming the land surrounding this historic building. Would have been nice to see an information board here.

Only 2mins from the centre and is worth a look. Shame there aren't steps going down though. Also its surrounded by car parks and taxi bays so watch your step.

"The Valle dei Mulini, or 'Valley of Mills', in Sorrento is home to a beautifully haunting menagerie of abandoned mills, which were once part of the area's pasta production industry." This was written by Mailonline. I simply enjoy reminding myself of how great it is to appreciate a little but wide window of Sorrento's past and also appreciate it in... More

Really worth a look here and easy to find. You can feel a bit queasy though putting your head over the side but it's pretty amazing and you can get some photos. Find out the history of it before you go too it will mean more,

Looking down on this it is hard to imagine that the main flour mill building was built in 900 and stayed in business for almost 1000 years. There was also a saw mill and a clothes washing house for women to gather as it use to be cool down there. The Piazza Tasso was built in front of the valley... More

Just up from Piazza Tasso, a look from the bridge down on old sorrento. This was a mill and people used to live down the crevice before Sorrento was built upwards.
