Erice

If the origins of Erice have become lost in the fog of time, walking through the cobbled streets of the medieval town on the summit of Mount San Giuliano, that same fog allows the discovery of signs, symbols and legends which originated long before the Punics and Romans who erected a sanctuary dedicated to the Goddess of Love here. Visiting Erice means, in fact, losing oneself amongst thousands of glimpses of cobbled streets, fortifications, ancient churches (the Mother Church and Sant'Orsola), monasteries, craft shops (producing ceramics, typical pastries, rugs), pine woods and gardens to then lose oneself on the edge of the town, in breathtaking views towards the Egadi Islands, the Stagnone, the salt pans and the cultivated fields of  the whole of the province of Trapani.
