Manarola may be the oldest of the cities in the Cinque Terre, with the San Lorenzo church dating back to 1338.
It's a small part of the comune of Riomaggiore, in the State of La Spezia, Liguria.
It's the second-smallest of the famed Cinque Terre villages with a tiny population of 353 people. Wine-making and fishing are Manarola's main business. Most of the homes are bright and colourful and the dialect is called Manarolese, which is slightly different from the dialects of the region.
