Erice, between myth and history

Erice is an amazing village, a little jewel set in the top of San Giuliano’s Mountain, where myths, legends, great events, amazing landscapes and monuments coexist. Erice is not only the Norman Castle (once it has been a Venus’ temple and, before, it has been also a Tanit-Astarte’s temple and the site of an everlasting fire for the Mediterranean’ seamen), the Cathedral or the gardens around the Castle…Erice is also and above all alleys and fog, old walls and unforgettable landscapes in which you lose the horizon’s line, and it is also a good point from where you can see the sea and the sky that sometimes appear of the same colour.
