Manarola Italy by Paul Hogie for National Geographics “My Shot.” It was photo of the day for JUNE 17, 2010
Manarola is the second smallest of the famous Cinque Terre towns frequented by tourists on the Italian Riviera. It is possibly the oldest of the five towns with the cornerstone of the San Lorenzo Church dating to 1338. One of the towns finest products is a locally made wine called Sciacchetrà and is noted in Roman literature for it’s quality. Vineyards cover the hillside and region around the town. The other major industry is fishing. The towns small harbor can barely be seen in this photo.
