Ancient "Erice"...was a source of contention between the Maritime Republics of Genoa and Pisa. Today, besides the amazing, fairy-tale landscape that inspired artists, writers and poets, buildings of exemplary beauty remain, such as the castle which is presently home to the Geo-palaeontology museum
located on the highest point of the bay, and the walls that surround the ancient city centre. The Chapel of St. Anastasia and the hexagonal tower are definitely worth seeing. Indulge in the sunset at the Venere Azzurra bay in S. Terenzo, ending your day spent at this pearl
of the Gulf of Poets with a flourish.
