Erice Fortified City

Erice was populated by the Elymians who erected the temple dedicated to the worship of the goddess of fertility and love.

The successive rulers named the temple to their own god, the Phoenicians adored Tanit-Astarte, the Greek Aphrodite, the Romans the Venus Ericina.

Still today, on the ruins of the temple stands the Venus Castle, fortified during the domination of the Norman, adjacent to the gardens of Balio dominated by medieval towers.
The town walls are cyclopean and have a Elymian system (VII century B.C.) at whose corners stand the Norman Castle and the Cathedral (or Matrix) (1314), which preserves the original fourteenth-century Gothic style, with the bell tower and the her delicate mullioned windows and the Spanish Quarter. The old town centre is characterized by medieval city planning with small square, narrow and winding streets with beautiful and flowered courtyards.

Erice is situated on the summit of an isolated mountain and it’s 15 km far from Trapani. It’s at 756 m above sea level, it is located in a splendid panoramic position, the city has now established itself as one of the main tourist destinations in Sicily.

Erice put up over 60 churches including those of St. Martin, St. Cataldo, St. Giuliano, St. Giovanni the Baptist.

It is also centre of scientific culture "Ettore Majorana" and keeps intact the charm of a medieval village, typical handcraft products to be found in the shops: finely decorated ceramics, by hand woven carpets, and traditional sweets based on almond and candied fruit.
