Old Town, Sorrento

Worth mentioning is the Valley of the Mills, that together with 4 valleys were used in ancient times to indicate the border between the towns (Meta, Piano, Sant’Angello, Sorrento).
The Sorrento Valley, around, on the south-east, the tuffaceous block of the historic center of Sorrento, watching from above you can see a characteristic rift of the rock, that reach deep into the tufa platform transversely. This incisive wound was originated from the larger eruption that shook the Mediterranean about 35,000 years ago.
