LOCATION:

Erice is among the oldest cities in Sicily. The town is placed on the
homonymous mount Eryx, religious center of the Elimi, which is famous
for its temple where the Phoenicians worshipped Astarte, the Greeks
Aphrodite and the Romans Venus. Throughout history Erice was contended
by many different populations, and each of them left a palpable sense
of history. Erice is nowadays an enchanting wonderfully preserved
Mediaeval town offering the most breathtaking views in Sicily.
