Like so many Sicilian town, Erice passed from one invader to another leaving their architectural calling cards and their cultural footprints. Often covered in its own personal cloud, Erice is a wonderfully preserved Medieval town, just above Trapani, offering the most breath-taking views and a palpable sense of history. Here five places must-see in Erice.
Venus Castle ane the Balio Gardens
The Spanish Neighbourhood
The Real Chiesa Madrice Insigne Collegiata (the Duomo)
Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture
Erice, the "Mount". The centuries here have given appointment to gods and demigods, to heroes and water lilies, to saints and hermits, to faith and art. And they have met and still live there admirably, after wars, splendor and misery, when the view, from the top of the Mount, sweeps towards blue horizons and moves, fertilized by ancient memories, towards unknown dimensions pregnant with infinity to reach timeless Erice
