  • Built between 1909 and 1912, produced bricks which were exported abroad. Much of Tripoli was built with the bricks of the kiln Pen after the war of 1911. Destroyed by arson, after various proposals for recovery, to date, is still under these conditions. Here were filmed scenes from the tv series "Dexter" where this place is known as the "Nes".

  • the hotel unfortunately is in a State of disrepair and fenced in, can't join, you can just drive around, but the glance even from outside is gorgeous, great example of industrial archaeology, value it would be fantastic for tourism

  • Fascinating this giant kiln built between 1909 and 1912, abandoned today in Punta Pisciotto, a symbol of industrial ambitions and conquest unfortunately lost. The "Nes" (meaning the fold) of the tv series Il Commissario Montalbano is desolate place, night frequentation for couples, like in the movies of the Commissioner, overlooking the sea and in total decay. Nice to see even if dying in a wild natural environment.

  • interesting historical site (old brick factory) that you can walk around (but not go into) - difficult to access though
  • Fantastico!
  • The pen is "Mànnera" in the fiction of Inspector Montalbano, and following his tracks we have reached in this beautifully preserved site despite the bad reputation that this place has in fiction. Not to be missed, facing an endless sea is an unforgettable sight!

  • Beautiful place unfortunately dropped apart and surrounded by garbage. Must place to visit if you are interested in places of commissario Montalbano. A few meters from a beautiful beach.

  • Is the perfect backdrop for this long (almost 3 Km) and the beautiful beach of Sampieri, probably the only henceforth remained made up of dunes, stands in the background, as a skeleton abandoned, symbol of an industrial age that here would not take root, perhaps this was intentionally burned ...
