View of Erice

erice_pepoli_1_2000c

This view of the eastern flank of Erice was taken from the wall of the Castello di Venere (Castle of Venus). The spectacular cluster of turrets in the foreground is the Torretta Pepoli, restored in 2014. The basilica on the right is the Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista.

  1. Love this. I remember reading about Erice in ‘The Golden Honeycomb’ by Vincent Cronin- a book which transported me into a magical world of bees and golden artefacts, reputedly existing somewhere in Sicily.
