Erice the medieval town

Erice the medieval town

On the summit of a mountain, 751 metres high, rises Erice, the pearl of the province.

An ancient and important city, Erice still has all the charm of a medieval town. According to Thucydides, it was founded by some residents of Troy who took refuge here after their city was destroyed.

For sailors it was an important point of reference:during the night a big fire burning in the sacred area of Venus served as a beacon for those approaching from the sea.

The city then followed the historical vicissitudes of the island: it was Roman, Byzantine, Arab and Norman.

During Norman rule the famous Castle of Venus was built.

During the Middle Ages, many churches and monasteries were built You can reach Erice with our Transfer and Mini Bus service driving up the mountain there is unforgettable view.
