The abandoned mill in Sorrento, Italy


In the town of Sorrento near Naples, southern Italy, there's a deep canyon, also known as 'The valley of the mills'. There, between thick vegetation there's the old mill, functioning since the beginning of the 900's and used to produce flour. The mill was abandoned around 1866 when the creation of Tasso square isolated the mill from the sea, provoking a rise in the humidity, which soon forced the mills abandonment.  Today the mill is among the tourists attractions of Sorrento.

  1. Been to Sorrento twice and wondered what this was and its history. I thought it was an old monastery. They should make more of it as a tourist attarction
