Photo: Corniglia Village Liguria Italy

The village of Corniglia glistens in the sunlight atop the cliff overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in the Cinque Terre in Liguria, Italy.

One of the five villages of the Cinque Terre is this unique village that sits atop the high land that juts into the Mediterranean Sea in Liguria, Italy. This village is the only one that is not directly adjoining the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea.

Corniglia is situated at approximately one hundred meters high on the top of the cliff. Three sides of the village is made up of vineyards and terraces with the fourth side looking directly below to the sea. The cliffs are extremely steep and the only way to reach the village is to climb almost four hundred steps or take the road that starts at the station leading up to the village.

As the sun sparkles off the surface of the sea, the one side of the houses that face the sea soak up the remaining rays while the other side looks out over the road. The history surrounding the village dates back to the Roman age and the majority of the locals that reside in Corniglia today rely on agriculture as a means of life. ... continue below the picture...

Pictures from photo gallery "Cinque Terre National Park"

This picture is part of the photo album "Cinque Terre National Park" - there are more beautiful images waiting for you.


... At one time Corniglia was a fishing community and that still continues but agriculture has taken over throughout the community as a major source of income.

In the village, the church of Saint Peter is a spectacular place to visit as it is one of the most beautiful churches in the Cinque Terre that was built in 1334. You can learn the history behind this church and then explore the rest of the village before heading along the path that takes you amongst some of the crops that have nearly been abandoned.

This path will lead you out of Corniglia in Liguria, Italy and take you to Vernazza, the next village of the Cinque Terre. A trip to the Cinque Terre is breathtaking as you make your way from village to village with stunning scenery along the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea.
