Vallone dei Mulini (known in English as Valley of the Mills) is a historic valley in Sorrento, Italy.
After even a small amount of research concerning this intriguing and unique oddity, you will discover the purpose it served and the reason for its and, by extension, the city of Sorrento's existence. Adventurous and nimble explorers can even hire a guide and obtain permission to descend into this ruin. Good luck!
We nearly missed this wonderful place. We saw it purely by accident. What a view of this ancient sawmill which is lying far below the current street level. It reminded me of the forests of fairytales. Really something to observe when in Sorrento.
Magical. A tiny walk from the main square and so worth a look.
An ancient sawmill right off the main square.
Very interesting place to look down upon. There is an inaccessible trap door below the parking structure to allow access down the side of the valley. Unfortunate that it isn't open to the public.
I have wanted to come to Sorrento to see the mills for 7 years now. I am a huge aficionado of all things abandoned and these mills are quite famous. I read that you could walk through them, similar to a park, but when I arrived I found it was completely closed off and there is no access down to the mills themselves. I was absolutely crushed. It is still beautiful from above, but I would have given anything to go down.
