Trapani and Erice
Trapani is a nice little town on the westernmost tip of Sicily. Thanks to its ancient history there are plenty of art and culture treasures to discover. Its old centre has been thoroughly restored and is mainly visitable on foot.
A short tour of Trapani comprises the Annunziata sanctuary, which is the most important monument of Trapani, built in the 14th century and still boasting its original Gothic facade; and the adjoining Carmelite convent, now transformed in the interesting Pepoli museum, with collections reconstructing the history of this area and several works of art, such as the amazing collection of silver and coral objects.
Next stop of this tour is in Erice, an historical walled town perched on the top of a mountain with the same name. This picturesque village still preserves its old medieval look with small cobbled streets lined with stone houses. There is no lack of religious buildings, such as the Cathedral, the San Giuliano and Madonna della neve churches. You’ll also visit the public Baglio Gardens and the nearby castle, built by the Normans above the temple of Venus, one of the most worshipped of ancient times. After enjoying the vast panorama from the belvedere don’t forget to buy some almond confectionery in the local pastry shops.
