Amalfi Coast Fornillo Towerback to list
this is one of the 30 watching towers left in these days on the Amalfi coast…located just few miles before getting to the centre town of Positano, called Torre di Fornillo but better know as the Tower of Clavel….who was Clavel?His name was Gilbert Clavel,a wealthy professor and intellectual from Basel (Switzerland).
He bought the Tower in 1909 for only 600 lire (which means the approx. 30 cents of this days).
It’s the only tower on the Amalfi coast with a Pentagonal Structure
