Our boat was approaching the dock of Portovenere when I took this picture. This gives you the type of building in this UNESCO protected district of Cinque Terre and Portovenere.
The Cinque Terre are five coastal villages in the province of La Spezia in the Liguria region of Italy. They have come to be among the most popular areas of Italy among tourists. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all encapsulated in a national park by the same name.
The five villages are, from east to west: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterrosa Al Mare.

Hi Andre, good one, with amazing colours and a good POV too from the boat.
The only wrong thing is about the location. This is Portovenere, just outside the Cinque Terre, in the Poets' Gulf, 5 or 6 miles south-east.
It's part of the Unesco Heritage Site that is called "Cinque Terre & Portovenere"
Also the other one image that you had uploaded on the theme Cinque Terre, the Italian Rivera isn't about Riomaggiore, but is the main church of Portovenere!
And finally the one that you had titled as Manarola...it's Riomaggiore!

It's another beautiful shot taken with a good POV. The colors and contrasts are beautiful and the diagonal framing of the city is very interesting. I've appreciated a lot. Well done, regards, Consuelo
