Valle delle Ferriere, Amalfi

#1 of 12 in Wildlife in Amalfi Coast
Waterfall · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
At Valle delle Ferriere, take a peaceful walk through lush woods of tall chestnut and lemon trees, and long-leaved ferns dating back to prehistoric times. Intersected by cool streams and waterfalls, the path leads through a protected habitat of rare pre-glacial plants, past ruins of medieval foundries that gave the area its name. Protected from the cold northern winds by rocky ridges, the valley is also known as the Vallone dei Mulini after a number of abandoned water-powered mills that once produced famous Amalfi paper. If you need to catch your breath while soaking up the lovely scenery, relax on one of the several benches along the way.
