PROTECTED AREA OF THE 5 TERRE

Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore: the five pearls of Liguria, a UNESCO World Heritage.

A closely stripe of land between sea and ridge, a place where the man bowed to the splendor of the landscape, leaving it to dominate nature and articulate, with the passing of the seasons, rhythms of life.

Here, in a jagged coastline of the Ligurian Riviera of Levante, which runs from Punta Mesco to Punta Montenero, there are five beautiful villages or, as they said in ancient times, Terre. From here the the name “Cinque Terre”.

The Five pearls of Liguria are, from west to east: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore.

Thanks to the characteristics of the territory in which they arise, and thanks to the human capacity, Cinque Terre are one of the main attractions of the entire Liguria and Italy, known everywhere in the world.

This is a magic land, where the blue of the sea joins the green hills and the glare of the sun on the sea seem to paint the coast with many colors.

These villages are a priceless and delicate heritage, so in 1997, at the request of the province of La Spezia are now, together with Portovenere and the islands of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto a UNESCO World Heritage. Then, in 1998, for further protection, was established the National Park of Cinque Terre to ensure the conservation of ecological balance and protect the land.

With their beautiful landscapes, pretty scents, many flavors and colours, Cinque Terre will make you fall in love.
