A VIEW FROM THE TOP

ERICE is a medieval town situated on a mountain overlooking Trapani, the valley and the sea. It is famous for its Norman Castle (also called the Temple of Venus), the Medieval Towers, the Duomo, churches, sweets and ceramics. The following pictures were taken by my friend Viviane, on her first trip to Sicily, and my cousin Francesca.
