The Valley of the Mills, which stretches across Amalfi, has been recognized as a World Heritage site since 1997. Amalfi‘s paper making industry was as renowned as its maritime past. It had for centuries relied on torrential rains that ran down the mountainside and into the valley behind it in order to supply the power and water for fourteen lucrative paper mills.
The Arab-inspired hydraulic system is made up of a network of mills, canals, cisterns, wells and waterwheels which begin at the Canneto torrent.

We pass several of these abandoned mills during our walk and at the same time we will appreciate typical terraced landscape with its dry stone walls and lemon trees. This walking tour will allow everyone to visit a unique area of local culture, memory and identity.
At the end of the walk a visit to the paper museum will offer a very informative tour.
