Aeneas Myth
The particular and deeply mysterious atmosphere which is breathed in Erice has favoured the diffusion of numerous legends. A myth about its foundation is the one by Virgil: Aeneas docked at Pizzolungo, at the foot of the mountain where he held his father Anchisesís funeral. Following some fires, the hero was forced to leave some of his travel companions behind, who settled on the mountain, founding the town.
