Well it's just something to look down at when passing by. So it's nice, fascinating in a way and you could look at it and speculate about old times... or move on to the lively center.

Quite a sad reminder that even the stupidest of constructions can be subject to such decay and desolation. We could only view it from the road above. Quite off the beaten path but midway between Piazza Tasso and the wood inlay factory.

Well, it's there, but what is it? Some quite old ruins of a saw mill or mills. However these ruins have been there for numerous generations, for several hundred years, and are completely overgrown. Frankly they are not worth going out of your way to...More

Just a minutes walk behind the Tasso square you'll find this derelict mill situated at the bottom of a volcanic ravine created after a volcanic eruption. The building was cut off from the valley when the Tasso square was built. You can't get to it,...More

From Piazza Tasso as you look at Bar Fauno take the road to the left of the bar. You will be walking towards Hotel Antiche Mura. It is down in the valley opposite the hotel.
