Prevo is a tiny hamlet of Vernazza right in the center of Cinque Terre National Park, along the Blue Path (Sentiero Azzurro), 1,5 km away from Corniglia and 1,3 km from Vernazza. It is the highest and most impressive spot at 208 meters above sea level.
built in the early sixteenth century thanks to some families of shepherds who
arrived from the mountains inland to spend the winter with their
flocks. They had estimated that the area was among the hottest in the
Cinque Terre, so that the basin which descends from Prevo to the sea is called, even today, 'the hell'.
