Manarola in the Cinque Terre, a gem not to be missed

In the heart of the Cinque Terre lies an ancient and fascinating jewel: Manarola. Also known as the “intellectual” village of this fascinating region, Manarola at the Cinque Terre stands as one of the oldest villages, whose roots date back to 1338, witnessed by the majestic church of San Lorenzo. The timeless charm of Manarola lies not only in its antiquity, but also in its unique atmosphere and breathtaking sunsets it offers to its visitors. This fascinating village is in fact loved not only as a tourist destination, but also as an ideal place for romantic and unforgettable stays.

One of the peculiarities of Manarola is also its local dialect, Manarolese, slightly different from the languages spoken in the surrounding areas. The name itself, “Manarola”, embodies a fascinating dialectal evolution: probably derived from the Latin “magna rota”, which means “great wheel”, in reference to the wheel of the mill of the country. In the Manarolese dialect, this was subsequently changed to “magna roea”, confirming the deep link between the name and the historical roots of this enchanting village.
