 It has been said that the Cinque Terre winemaker
is a sort of modern and everyday hero, who, by continuously restoring the dry-stone walls, draws a living from the vineyard giving life to the territory”.

Why Care About

Dry Stone Wall Terracing

The Cinque Terre are a Unesco World Heritage site because
“the work of man over the millennia has transformed a jagged, steep coastine into an intensively terraced landscape so as to be able to wrest from nature a few hectares of land suitable for agriculture, such as growing vines and olive trees”.

Dry stone walls are the back bone of the Cinque Terre man made terraced landscape.
Understanding the history, technique and impact of the dry stone wall opens the way to understanding the Cinque Terre’s landscape, culture and people.
