Address: Pettorano Sul Gizio

Description

As one of the entries to the village of Pettorano this gate forms part of the ancient city wall.   The door of the mill itself is more modest with its unidentified stonework and a simple round arch. It was commissioned by the noble Cantelmo family in order to access to the mills and copper works that were located along the river Gizio. Nowadays three grain mills and a fulling mill are open to visitors and the area to the west of the historic center of Pettorano is also very impressive from a naturalistic perspective.
