Keeping Cinque Terre Safe

As you walk down the final parts of the Via del Amore’ in Cinque Terre into Monterosso, if you look on the left at the base of the castle you see a cool bit of history left over from World War II.  During WWII, the Germans built the low rounded bunker to defend the coastline against invasion.  I’m not really sure why – you’d be insane to try to invade the rough territory of Cinque Terre.  It obviously must be to protect the wonderful seafood, pesto, and wine from the region.  There’s nothing to see inside the bunker – but it’s amazing how cramped it is.  It would not be fun fighting a battle from inside of there!
