Erice is 1 3/4 hours from Palermo. It has fog when there is none at lower elevations. The view is great if you don't have fog--but you can't rely on the weather forecast for that. This church is covered with scaffolding and closed. In general,...More

Visited this church on Easter Monday it was still decorated with statues that took part in the procession of the Good Friday. An interesting building to see build in the era of Count Roger.

The church dates back to the Norman days: it was originally built in 1070 and then rebuilt in the 17th century. Gracious statue of Madonna and Child inside is worth attention. Beautiful pink stone facade and the Baroque bell tower of the Church di St.Giuliano...More

Yet another place of interest in the wonderful town of Erice. The 1070's gothic church is seven hundred years older than the baroque belltower. As with most Norman buildings it is a massive solid structure.
