Visit National Park (Five Lands)
The Cinque Terre National Park was set up in order to promote and safeguard the coastal rural territory of the Cinque Terre, an area created over centuries through constant collective work.
The early inhabitants of the Cinque Terre, in fact, transformed some totally inhospitable areas into a tidy coastal, agricultural landscape made up of terraces. These are cultivated almost exclusively with vines and are held up by approximately 6,729 kilometres of dry stonewalls.
Today, you can still see most of the old terraces that are at a constant risk of landslides, due to their abandonment, which in turn is a cause of, inter alia, the decline in agriculture. The Cinque Terre was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the National Park is working to recover and protect this monument of landscape agriculture and preserve its cultural, environmental, local and historical values by maintaining grape production, especially that of the famous Sciacchetrà, a fragrant passito wine (made from dried grapes)
