Looks like a little village sunk into the canyon a couple of hundred years ago.

We stumbled by this view walking through Sorrento. It's quite remarkable looking and makes you wonder what it was and why it was and still is abandoned. A good picture stop. I wouldn't spend time hunting for it. But, if it's not too out-of-the-way, stop by for a look.

Nothing spectacular, but another interesting little green area in a ravine in the historical center. You'll see it if you walk around the city center at all. 5 min to see, photo and read about

A gorgeous abandoned old mill is deep down in the valley... right in the middle of the town! Basically, you are just walking in the town when you face an absolutely huge hole, protected by barriers, thankfully. Down there is a very old mill, abandoned in 1866. Gives you an impressive feel on about how our cities may look if... More

I didn't expect to find this wonderful artefact done in the 15th century, in the heart of one of the most famous town in the world, which I imagined to be a center of the modern tourism! It is now an abandoned building in the middle of a valley that was crossed by a river to the sea, easily visible... More

This was a spot that we just stumbled upon on one of our walks to town with our kids. Our kids were amazed with what they saw!!

It was interesting to peer down at the mill that was abandoned in 1866 after Tasso square was constructed and cut the mill off from the sea and also raised the humidity at the mill. You can get view it by walking up the street on the left of the Fauno Bar.

Was expecting this to be a 'wow amazing view!' moment but it wasn't. The mill is much smaller than expected and further away, and barely lit up at night (lights in the windows, not shining on the outside). If you're in Sorrento give it a look, if you're not then don't bother visiting just to see this.

I read about this attraction and looked for it as soon as I arrived to Sorrento. You can see it all in a minute, but it is quite original and plus, the walk from Piazza Tasso is very nice.
