The Five Lands
Five miles of rocky coast-line in th east of Liguria, 2 rocky promontories at the uttermost ends, thousands of kilometres of dry stone walls full of vine cultivations, five small villages suspended on the rocky hill sides overlooking the sea. These are the Cinque Terre. This territory has finally become a National Park and is under Unesco protection since 1997 as it is an important naturalistic environment. This area is characterised by the presence of steep hillside facades cultivated with vines using the terrace cultivation method. The transformation of this territory is proof of what hard work can achieve.
