Riomaggiore - Italy cities
Riomaggiore is the first town arriving from La Spezia. Located in the valley of the Rivus Maior stream, now covered. According to the tradition, the town dates back to the VIII century, when a group of Greek fugitives from the persecution of Leone III Isaurico, found shelter here.

The houses, painted with typical traditional colours, follow the scheme of the tower houses. They are structured in three or four plants. The access is possible to the main entrance and from behind, at the upper floors height.

In the high part of the town, we can admire the parish church of San Giovanni Battista, built in the 1340 by the bishop of Luni, the XVI century oratory “dei Disciplinati” and the ruins of the XV-XVI century castle.
In Riomaggiore starts the “Via dell` Amore” that takes to Manarola, a very suggestive pedestrian street, with beautiful landscapes, among the noise of the waves smashed against the cliffs.
