Sorrento's anciant flour mills were in a deep gully that now cleaves the town, but which formed a natural defence at one side of the old town. The seaward end of this gully is Via Marina Piccolo, the route down to the main port, although since Piazzo Tasso was built over the top, the gully no longer goes right through. It's said that rare species of fern and bryophyte grow down there. I'd not be surprised, but as the original paths emerges from a stone wall half-way down, access now is impossible.
