The coast between Sestri Levante and La Spezia is rough and wild, characterized by cliffs and steep mountain slopes. A landscape so beautiful to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Striking the magnificent villages of Cinque Terre, famous throughout in the world: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore that, facing the sea, appear almost clinging to the rocks. The park extends from Tramonti, to the east, up to Monterosso, to the west. The coast is a succession of cliffs, which create a rather complex geology: zebra rocks into thin bands for Riomaggiore, shaded gray marl for Manarola, for Corniglia dark clay and sandstone for Vernazza and Monterosso. The flora has many plant species, both of Mediterranean that mountain type, endemic and rare. There are pinasters, Aleppo pines, cork and chestnut trees. In rock and coastal areas are Mediterranean species such as sea fennel and marine Cineraria, as well as shrubs such as rosemary, thyme, helichrysum and Lavandula. Also present were numerous tree species and succulents. The environment is ideal habitat for many animal species. Among the birds stand out the herring gull, peregrine falcon and raven, while among the mammals, we find dormice, weasels, weasel, badger, weasel, fox and wild boar. Many reptiles: the wall lizard, the green lizard and snakes like the rat snake, the snake of Aesculapius and the viper.
