Gateway to the Cinque Terre – Framura

Gateway to the Cinque Terre – Framura

On closer inspection, there are not many villages in Liguria that can reflect 'Ligurian-ness' as much as Framura. Sea with beaches and cliffs, villages clinging to the hills, vineyards and olive groves, small churches to discover and small restaurants with a sea view;and in the background, the somewhat wild nature that makes Liguria unique. Framura is truly a discovery, now more evocative thanks to the Maremonti cycle/pedestrian path, which has its landing (or departure if you like) point here.

The map of the village, which is also included in the list of Italy's Most Beautiful Villages, features a network of paths connecting the various hamlets.

Unique landscapes

Beautiful hamlets are almost reflected in the blue sea: Anzo, Castagnola, Costa, Ravecca and Setta make up a sort of lifesize nativity scene, scattered among the inlets and coves. And then there are the beautiful beaches such as the Torsei beach below the railway station;the Vallà beach, miraculously sandy in the midst of so much gravel and cliffs. Arena, finally, is the widest beach.

A special combination of wind type and coastline shape makes this area a paradise for wave watching: high waves and suggestive storms, also loved by surfers.

Trekking and mountain biking

The beautiful and unique cycle and pedestrian path is worth discovering: along the five kilometre route, which is easy and has been carved out of the old railway line, you will discover wonders such as the small beach of Porto Pidocchio, on which a rock face for climbing enthusiasts stands out. The map of the village, which is also included in the list of Italy's Most Beautiful Villages, features a network of paths connecting the various hamlets.

In Framura, in the church in the hamlet of Castaginola, you can visit 'La Deposizione' by Luca Cambiaso, a painter who became famous for his paintings at the Escorial in Madrid.

Toast by the sea

Thanks to its mostly hilly terrain, there are many farm houses in Framura, where you can taste local dishes and sip the wine of the Cinque Terre and the Levanto Hills. The local menu includes tagliolini with mussels, vegetable or anchovy pie, breaded rabbit, friscioi (fritters) with courgette flowers.
