Scervola Stream Mill

A three storey stone mill hidden in the woods

The Scervola stream mill, built in 1872 by the Binotti family, as chisled on its entrance stone, is situated near the Scervola stream in the Comune di Podenzana. Today the ruins are partially covered by the vegetation of the surrounding woods, which make this place seem “out of this world” taking us back to a time made up of a slow-paced life style and nature. The mill is one of the most beautiful and largest in Lunigiana: with its three floors and large stone arches, but is now unfortunately completely abandoned and it is slowly being swallowed up by nature.
