About the location
The Regional Natural Park of Portovenere extends as a western extension of the Gulf of La Spezia, which includes the headland of Porto Venere, the islands of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto and the Marine Protection Area. The various Mediterranean species distributed westwards, reaching their north-western limit of distribution at these coasts, increase the overall prestige of the floral ecosystem.
The Territory maintains a strong natural character to the present days and is covered with flourishing Mediterranean scrub as a sign of its constant dynamism in the different microclimates: ranging from a situation of scrubland to one of scrub with multiple aspects, as well as Holm oak and pine forests of Aleppo pine mixed with maritime pine and other oak trees (Cerro and Roverella).
Le Grazie is a small fishing village close to Porto Venere where is the archaeological site of the Villa Romana del Varignano, the sanctuary of Santa Maria delle Grazie, the village of Fezzano and the San Giovanni Battista church built in 1740. The port is placed in a favorable geographical position.The village of Le Grazie has ancient origins and its historical part is built around the Church of Our Lady of Le Grazie, patron saint of the village. In the old part of Varignano are the remnants of the Roman Villa of Varignano, built in the first half of the 1st Century B.C.. The villa is surrounded by olive trees, and at the time, as it was situated right on the water, it was an ideal place to moor and shelter. This archeological site can now be visited.
The Cinque Terre (5 Lands) , awarded by UNESCO the title of World Patrimony of Mankind, are a National Park and Protected Marine Environment. The Cinque Terre comprise the coastal area from Punta Mesco up to Portovenere. It is a strip of land and rocks about 15 km long and 3/4 km large rising steeply from the sea towards the mountains.
In the ridges of the mountains dropping down to the sea, the five small villages of the Cinque Terre have crouched among the several inlets of its spur and day after day Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso then grew. Thanks to an age-long isolation, deriving from the difficulty of communications, we today enjoy the preserved beauty and charme of a virgin landscape. The typical orographic traits have survived intact over the centuries thanks to the well balanced and unchanged relationship between nature and man’s work. Stimulated by the need of making these areas agriculturally exploitable, the inhabitants have created a system of low dry-walls (over 7000 km) allowing even today the vineyards cultivation. These terraces, called "i cian" give this area its very peculiar and original look. The harsh asperity of the territory blends harmoniously with the man made terraces characterising the coast.
Portofino is famous all over the world: the very name evokes images of all things beautiful, elegant and exclusive.The lovely landscape, mild climate, and ongoing pursuit of quality make this one of the most sought-after destinations in the world. Since 1987 Consorzio Portofino Coast has been representing the great heritage of this area, made up not only of natural beauty but also of history, tradition, culture, professionalism, and enthusiasm for innovation.
