Hotel in Vernazza


Territory of Vernazza:

Vernazza, starting from the west ,is the second town of the Cinque Terre, nestled in a bay between Monterosso and Riomaggiore. This territory , too , is characterized by the typical terraces for vine cultivation , a morphological style achieved by man through the centuries.

The territory is part of the National Park of the Cinque Terre.

The municipality is made up of the five hamlets of Corniglia, Drignana, Muro, Prevo and San Bernardino for a total of 12,3 km².

Cultural Vernazza:

The beautiful church of S. Margherita di Antiochia, (Margaret the Virgin) built on the seaside on the most western part of the town. It is said to date back to the 13th century.

At 325mts a.s.l is the Shrine of Nostro Signore di Reggio.

The Doria castle has been in this territory since 1080, it was built on a rock dominating the town and the bay and has quite an irregular form.

Under the castle is a quandrangular bastion, Belforte , it rises above the sea stacks at the entrance of the small port and probably dates back to the period of the reinforcement of Genovese dominion.

At the beginning of the path which leads to Corniglia, there is a tower which was probably built the same time as the castle.

An old monastery composed of a wall, a tower, a deconsecrated church and a beautiful cloister is today, the town hall of Vernazza. The building dates back to the 17th century.

The ridge path, known as the highway of the Cinque Terre is an old mule track which runs along the watershed that separates the coast from the Val di Var .

More detailed information: to get to the village using the ridge path you must take one of the following transversal paths: path 6 at Monte Verde, path6/a at Monte Capri or path 02 at Monte Galera.

Another path is the “azzurro” (blue) which goes through the entire Ligurian Riviera which in turn goes through all the Cinque Terre from Monterosso to Riomaggiore, also crossing the celebrated Via dell’Amore( lover’s walk).

Also to remember is "La Via dei Santuari" it goes through all five of the Cinque terre with a visit to a shrine in each village.
