The tiny town of Manarola is administratively part of Riomaggiore, but it is a small village on its own. The current town center dates back to the 12th century. A series of colorful houses, in the typical Ligurian style, crowd the main street (Via Discovolo) and the surrounding tiny alleys, known as caruggi.
A square on a terrace overlooks Manarola's picturesque, tiny harbor. The town is also home to a few surviving ruins from an ancient castle.
Manarola is also renowned for its surrounding vineyards, where the famous Cinque Terre white wine and the sweet Sciacchetra wine are produced.
