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

The Vallone dei Mulini is a very interesting place for a quick visit. It can be seen from the road and pathways above, where there is also a small information board and a bench. Be aware that it is not possible to get up close...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.

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

Just stumbled across this as we walked around. So deep in the ravine but with the sun shining down on it in the afternoon it looked magical

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.
