Erice

Region Description: Sicily read more..

Erice is a charming medieval town 571 metres above sea level. The little town is located on the top of Monte San Giuliano, from where you can enjoy a splendid view of Trapani. It was inhabited by the Elymi, but soon after the end of the fifth century B.C. it was a Carthaginian colony and only in 241 B.C., as a result of the Egadi battle, was conquered by the Romans. It is about 12km from Trapani (20 minutes’ drive) or you can get the cable car from Trapani which takes 7 minutes. It is very worthwhile seeing the 14th century Duomo, the main cathedral; the Norman Castle; the churches of San Martino and San Domenico the latter now home to the Ettore Majorana Scientific Centre. The Balio is a much beloved part of Erice for both locals and visitors alike as from there you can take in the stunning views of Trapani and her Egadi islands. No visitor can leave Erice without trying the world famous cakes and biscuits. Although these can be bought in most bars and cake shops, the most internationally renowned are to found in the Grammatico bakery. Here the recipes remain a closely guarded secret.
