Clinging to an impressive hundred metres high cliff, Corniglia is the only village of the Cinque Terre that can hardly be reached by sea. The way to get there is either by a long stairway named "Lardarina" (33 flights, 377 steps), or by the uphill road from the railway station.
The village, surrounded by vineyards and terraces, follows the bend of the central Via Fieschi. This wonderful hamlet offers many places to visit: the eighteenth-century square of Largo Taragio, a stunning stage between the houses, with the Oratory of Saint Catherine; the church of Saint Peter, one of the most interesting building of the riviera, an outstanding example of Ligurian Gothic.
