THE IRON VALLEY
This path leads down from the Lattari Mountains towards Amalfi, through forests of ferns and past streams and natural waterfalls.
It takes its name from the discovery of the remains of medieval ironworks. The area is also known as the Valley of the Mills, from the watermills that were used to manufacture Amalfi paper. The area is home to a Nature Reserve where the Woodwardia radicans fern still grows, a fern dating back to the last ice age.
