A beautiful sight that I’m so sad you couldn’t tour this 200 year old mill. You can sadly only enjoy its beauty from a far away bridge. My daughter was blown away at the sight thinking it was an old castle.

We had read about this and were in the area we were sure it was. When we had about given up we decided to walk away from the coast and crossed a bridge. Down in the ravine, we saw our quest. We photographed it from...More

We only noticed the Mill while waiting for our bus to pick us up to go to the Lemon Farm. Unfortunately I don't know to much of the history of this spot. Wish we had more time to investigate.

Old mill in near the middle of city, just up from piazza tasso, down in the ravine is a around 4- 5 story old mill. Worth a look

Deep down at an end of a gorge. Over the years the gorge has been filled in but only about 200 metres away look towards the sea it opens up again with the road going to the port of Sorrento

We walked by this site next to the hotel Antiche Mura and thought it was very cool to look at. The remnants of ancient steps and buildings in a long gone river bed and gorge. Easy to get to just one block off of the...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.
