Description

Coordinates: 44° 6′ 22″ N, 9° 43′ 38″ E

Manarola is a small village in the province of La Spezia, Liguria, northern Italy. It is the second smallest of the famous five Cinque Terre villages. Manarola may be the oldest of the towns in the Cinque Terre, with the cornerstone of the church, San Lorenzo, dating from 1338. The name “Manarola” is probably a dialectical evolution of the Latin, “magna rota”. In the Manarolese dialect this was changed to “magna roea” which means “large wheel”, in reference to the mill wheel in the town. Manarola’s primary industries have traditionally been fishing and wine-making. The local wine, called Sciacchetrà, is especially renowned; references from Roman writings mention the high quality of the wine produced in the region. Mostly all of the houses are bright and colourful. Manarola was celebrated in paintings by Antonio Discovolo (1874 - 1956).
