ABOUT THIS IMAGE
Riomaggiore is a village in the province of La Spezia in Italy, situated in a small valley in the Liguria region.
It is the most southern village of the World Heritage Site Cinque Terre which are all connected by trail. The
village dates from the early thirteenth century and is known for its historic character and wine, produced
by the town’s vineyards. It’s shoreline is on the Mediterranean’s Gulf of Genoa, with a small beach and a wharf
framed by tower houses. The main street is Via Colombo with numerous restaurants, bars & shops.
The water and mountainside have been declared national parks. In 1999 the Parco Nazionale delle Cinque
Terre was set up to conserve the ecological balance, protect the landscape, and safeguard the anthropological
values of the location. The area was included in the 2000 and 2002 World Monuments Watch by the World
While researching this writeup I was upset to discover that Cinque Terre was extensively damaged by devastating flooding
in October 2011. The village of Vernazza was devastated and beautiful Monterosso was virtually destroyed.
