The thousand-year-old cultivation of the grapevine represented for the Cinque Terre an element able to deeply change its appearance.
In fact, in the past, agriculture was the main activity in this area, and it was especially dedicated to the grapevine cultivation. In some areas olive trees and citrus trees were also cultivated, together with vegetables in some plots. Th highest areas were (and still are) covered with woods that supplied the villages with spontaneous fruits (especially chestnuts), wood and leaves that were used to fertilize the soil cultivated with vineyards.
