Bed and Breakfast Il Gatto Corniglia Cinque terre


Built on a about 100 Metres high rocky terrace, Corniglia is the only town in Cinque Terre without a direct access to the sea.
From the railway station, located near the sea, to reach the town you need to climb a steep staircase of 377 steps, called “Lardarina” or to use one of the buses of the National Park of Cinque Terre. Its calling is more rural than maritime, in fact it is known for the wine production. Its ancient name, “Cornelia”, was found written on some amphorae discovered in Pompeii excavations. The church of San Pietro, whose rose window has the image of a deer, the coat of arms of the town, dates back to the 13th Century. Near the church you can see a building with arches in black stone: the tradition determines it like the ancient post stage of the Fieschi Family, once Lords of the area.

Le Cinque terre

The Cinque Terre lies on a stretch of coast between Point Monternero and Point Mesco and includes the five villages of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso. Thanks to its characteristic geographical location Le Cinque Terre is one of the most attractive tourist destinations of the La Spezia Riviera.
The distinctive natural landscape with its hilly and harsh features are softened by the cultivated terraces that flow steeply towards the sea, providing the most dramatic and fascinating scenery of Liguria. The region is famous for its wine, a local speciality is "Sciacchetra" which is a sweet liqueur derived from the juice of dried grapes. The natural beauty of the area attracts millions of tourists from worldwide destinations each year. In 1997 the Cinque Terre, Portovenere and the three islands of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto were world heritage listed by UNESCO.
