The village of Manarola is classified by UNESCO as World Heritage.

Manarola is the second smallest town of the famous Cinque Terre towns frequented by tourists. The cornerstone is the church, San Lorenzo, dating from 1338. The name “Manarola” is probably dialectical evolution of the Latin, “magna rota”. In the Manarolese dialect this was changed to “magna roea” which means “large wheel”, in reference to the mill wheel in the town.

Manarola’‘s primary industries have traditionally been fishing and wine-making. The local wine, called Sciacchetr√†, is especially renowned; references from Roman writings mention the high quality of the wine produced in the region. In recent years, Manarola and its neighboring towns have become popular tourist destinations, particularly in the summer months.
