Situated on the outskirts of the Valle del Belice, Erice is a small town in the province of Trapani. Founded around the same time as Segesta, in antiquity Erice was probably the most important city of the Elimi (ancient peoples of western Sicily) who conducted religious rites.
Many peoples fought for control of Erice, probably because of its strategic location. It lies on top of Mount San Giuliano, behind which lies the countryside, and the boundless Mediterranean Sea opens in front of you. Today, Erice is a small village with a dwindling population but where local traditions endure and are known throughout the world.
Artisan crafts are characteristic of the area and some of its best expressions are found in the decorated ceramics. The cuisine is even more enticing. You can truly experience Erice by walking along its streets, admiring its architectural beauty and allowing yourself to become enchanted by its ancient traditions.
