The Manie Plateau
The Manie Plateau extends between the towns of Finale Ligure and Spotorno and can be reached in a few minutes by car from Finalpia thanks to a beautiful panoramic road that meanders between the terraced hills overlooking the sea.
The Manie have carved a leading role in the world of mountain biking in the last decade. The paths on which the famous 24 hours of Finale are run have become an unmistakable icon of Finale’s sports. Few tracks in the world, in fact, can boast spectacular views like the ones that you can enjoy from the vantage points scattered on the slopes that from the plateau descend towards the sea.
An obligatory destination is without doubt the cave Arma delle Manie, the most scenographic of all the caves of the Finalse, which saw the presence of animals and of the prehistoric man, as attested by the numerous and important archaeological finds.
For those looking to relax and unwind, we suggest parking the car and indulge in a pic-nic or a snack in one of the many beautiful meadows that line the main road.
One thing is certain: the almost primitive beauty of this plateau will not leave you indifferent.
