A little piece of history in the middle of Sorrento

This is an old Mill located a block away from Piazza Tasso. You won't be able to see it from street level as it sits in a gully at the end of the road. It's impressive that the city was built around this building and left largely intact. There's a plaque on street level that tells the story of the... More

Came across by accident this walking from the hotel to the town centre. Very close to the Piazza Tasso. We looked down at it from the road side. Would not recommend anyone going down to the old mill. It is overgrown and can be dangerous. Just an interesting site to view from above.

We came across this old mill in the ravine by accident, it looks quite eiree at night in the semi darkness way down below the road, if people get the chance they must go and have a look it is only approximately 200 metres of the Piazza Tasso right in the centre of Surrento.

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
