Deserted Places 2 – The Valley of the Mills, Sorrento, Italy

Map: Google Maps

Just south of Naples as one travels south down the shin of Italy, past Pompeii is Sorrento. This small town on the Amalfi coast hides a tourists gem, The Valley of the Mills. The site dates back to the 10th Century in terms of milling. The Italians have an appetite for pasta, it seems and so a strong reliable water supply was needed.

The valley was abandoned about 60 years ago and nature has reclaimed its space.

I hope you enjoy this montage of images, set to Luciano Pavarotti singing Miss Sarajevo with U2.
