Five Lands (Cinque Terre) - Corniglia
Corniglia is the middle-way village, the smallest and the highest of the Cinque Terre and the only one who does not have direct access to the sea. It is located on a rocky promontory 100 meters high above the blue, which spurs from the mountain range that spreads almost parallel to the coast. More linked to the territory that the sea, Corniglia has an agricultural vocation and an urban typology like the rural inland coutries, with lower houses, only recently elevated. The village grew up along the 'via Fieschi', with houses facing the street on one side and the other side looking the sea. The parish church of San Pietro is a beautiful Ligurian-Gothic example about Cinque Terre, built in 1334 on the ruins of a chapel of the XI century. © Anita Skibenes - See the Five Lands (Cinque Terre) map with a complete picture set.
