“Stunning!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

This is a stunning archeological wonder. The ancient mill is located far down in a deep ravine and the end of a street in Sorrento. It is easy to miss, as we were right next to it before we looked down and saw it. It looks like a castle and is overgrown with moss and other vegetation. At night various colored lights shine on it, giving it a unique atmosphere. The locals seem to be less impressed by it, than the tourists who happen upon it. Very little information is given about it in town. We were told it was an ancient pasta making building by our taxi driver. The pictures we took of it are my favorite Italian pictures. Amazing place.

“Put it on your to-do list”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Walking round Sorrento uncovers a series of unexpected vignettes, this is one of them. It is purely "a sight" but it worth giving you mind the time to wonder round whilst your body stays anchored in Piazza Tasso.

“Such an impressive sight.”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

It may be a 2 minute sight but it is absolutely amazing to see. Deep in the valley that runs under the central plaza there is a mill. At night it is illuminated from the inside, also quite impressive. The path to get there (not accessible) is treacherous to say the least. Crazy. My favorite sight in Sorrento so far.

“MILL”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Worth a visit for a look but not accessible. It is just off the Tasso Square in a deep volcanic rift. It would be good if the tourist board made more of it as a visitor attraction.

“Mildly interesting”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

It was worth a 5 minute detour but once you've seen these photos you've seen it all
