Erice Charming Medieval Town Holidays Western Sicily

Amazing sunset and charming city. For the best sunset in the region, go to Erice! Amazing! The city is also very charming and beautiful medieval buildings. Highly recommend a visit!

[su_youtube url=”https://youtu.be/JI1Ylvhcep4″ height=”520″]

There are natural paintings that remain etched in your memory forever. Erice is a wonderful medieval village in Sicily, perched on a cliff 750 meters above sea level, nestled in the beauty of a breathtaking landscape: blue sky tinged with white tufts and endless sea. I have a thing with medieval villages, because they make me think about the charm of history. Erice is one of my favourite medieval villages in Sicily together with Castelmola and Taormina.

Erice Charming Medieval Town Holidays Western Sicily

The best way to get to Erice is by the cable car in about 10 minutes. You will enjoy a stunning view: Trapani with its charming salt flats, the Egadi Islands and Erice from the above, before you set foot in this lovely medieval village.

Once you arrive at Erice enjoy a walk through cobbled streets and white churches. It is a dive into history. Erice is all around the main square Umberto I, where you can find delicious bars and pastries shops. Among the pastries shops I suggest you to go to Maria Grammatico‘s in Via Vittorio Emanuele 14. This pastry shop is famous for its tasty “Genovese”, at a cost of about €3.50. It is a mouth watering sweet: a bundle of pastry filled with cream, a sprinkling of powdered sugar and you are in the Heaven 😉 In the meanwhile, enjoy lovely alleys, stairs and nice courtyards.

 

Via Vittorio Emanuele is also the main street of Erice full of souvenir shops. If you are searching for  a very different souvenir go to the Ceramic shop by Paola Amico Luisa in Via Guarrasi 18. Here ceramics are a reinterpretation of the typical Sicilian ceramics: bowls, plates and saucers and also little souvenirs, such as cute ceramic magnets. Another typical Erice’s souvenir, although a bit more cumbersome, is the typical diamond pattern rug.

Erice is rich in churches! Don’t miss the Mother Church in late Gothic style with Renaissance and Arabs traits. I love the Gothic rose window and the jaw-dropping white marble roof. The church was built using material from the Castle of Venus. The bell tower is separated from the Church and it is a tourist information center. There is an entrance fee. Another beautiful church in Erice charming medieval village, is the Church of San Martino, characterized by impressive Gothic wooden statues dating back to 1300.

Castello di Pepoli Erice in Erice Charming Medieval Town Holidays Western Sicily

Beacon of Peace in the Mediterranean Aug 01, 2014
Castello di Pepoli with its torretta was built in the 1870’s by Count Agostino Pepoli (1848-1911), a scholar, lover of beauty and patron of the arts, who built it as a quiet retreat for his meditations, as well as gathering place for men of culture, artists and writers.

Erice charming medieval village  was built over a rocky outcrop, serving as foundation for the castle, and in a style resembling the Moorish/Saracen style. In April of 2013, restoration work began, after many years of neglect and decay, to bring it back to its former glory and turn it into an interactive museum and Centre for Peace.

After more than a year of work, the Castello di Pepoli officially opened again on July 19, 2014 when I visited it again shortly after opening. When I first saw it in 1995 one could still get down in there to see the castle, though it was in bad shape even then.

By 2005 one could not even get near it, the vegetation was so overgrown and the structure looked compromised. In 2014 it was a pleasure to see it restored and gleaming in the sunshine! The walkway down was slippery with fresh gravel from the construction, but better than the formidable jungle in past years! It is one of the iconic structures of Erice, seen in many photos.

Castellammare del Golfo

Castellammare del Golfo

Castellammare del Golfo A splendid Trip in a magic enchanting place

La cittadina sorge alle pendici del complesso montuoso di Monte Inici e dà il nome all’omonimo golfo prospiciente il castello, delimitato a est da capo Rama e a ovest da capo San Vito. Nasce come Emporium Segestanorum (porto della vicina Segesta), il luogo, cioè, dove gli Elimi – antico quanto misterioso popolo – esercitavano i loro commerci con le navi straniere. Furono gli Arabi che connotarono il centro – ribattezzato Al Madarig, ovvero “gli scalini”, forse dalla montagna che sovrasta l’abitato – come una roccaforte, resa inespugnabile con la costruzione del fortilizio e come polo di grande importanza commerciale, con l’insediamento della tonnara e del caricatore. Oggi Castellammare, grazie ad un patrimonio di valore inestimabile, costituito dalla straordinaria bellezza naturalistica delle sue coste e del suo immeddiato entroterra, si è giustamente proposta come importante polo di attrazione turistica che molto può offrire ai suoi visitatori.

Castellammare del Golfo A splendid Trip in a magic enchanting place

La spiaggia bianca di ciotoli a Baia di Giudaloca prolunga lo sviluppo costiero, a forma di anfiteatro, del Golfo di Castellammare. Il golfo, che si estende da Capo San Vito a Capo Rama ai piedi dei declivi rocciosi che ne definiscono la visuale a sud, ospita l’omonima cittadina. Le sue principali attività sono legate alla posizione e allo sviluppo del porto che sorge nel luogo dell’antico emporium segestano. In età medievale la città si è sviluppata intorno al Castello Arabo – Normanno, il primo nucleo del centro storico, ancora oggi riconoscibile, collegato originariamente all’abitato da un ponte levatoio. Il castello oggi è stato restaurato, e non soltanto in senso fisico: dell’antica struttura è stato restaurato il concetto di “protezione”, l’idea della “salvaguardia” che adesso, abbattendo ogni ponte levatoio immaginario, si apre al mondo esterno svelando la natura generosa di un’intera cittadina: oggi il maniero è un Polo Museale con il compito di tramandare “La Memoria del Mediterraneo”. Al suo interno, per iniziare, si può visitare il Museo dell’Acqua e dei Mulini.

Castellammare del Golfo A splendid Trip in a magic enchanting place

Tra Castellammare del Golfo e San Vito lo Capo i declivi collinari che degradano fino al mare, in una miriade di piccole baie, annunciano l’inizio della Riserva Naturale Orientata dello Zingaro. Lo Zingaro ha una superficie di 1650 ettari, una fascia litoranea di circa 7 Km, formata da una costa rocciosa di calcari del Mesozoico, intercalata da numerose calette e caratterizzata da strapiombanti falesie che da un’altezza massima di 913 mt. (Monte Speziale) portano rapidamente al mare. Il paesaggio subacqueo è un continuo susseguirsi di colori e forme. Si comincia dalla sponda dove l’impatto del mare si fa tumultuoso e si adorna del Lithophyllum tortuosum un’alga rossa intricatissima e sfrangiata.

Festa della patrona Maria SS. del Soccorso il 21 Agosto. Rievocazione Storica “Nostra Principalissima Patrona” dell’intervento prodigioso di Maria SS. del Soccorso in favore della città di Castellammare avvenuto il 13 luglio 1718.

Egadi Islands Favignana

Egadi Islands Favignana

Egadi Islands Favignana

Favignana is the largest and most important of the Egadi Islands, three islands off the western coast of Sicily. Favignana has good, frequent ferry connections with the other islands and with Trapani; the proximity of Trapani Airport makes the island remarkably accessible from the rest of Europe. This easy access hasn’t – yet – spoiled the island, which is a fairly low-key destination most visited by Italian holiday-makers. Although there are tourist amenities, the island’s character seems little-altered, and travellers who come here are happy to fit in with the leisurely island way of life. One of the charms of the Egadi Islands is that they have never been populated with villas of the rich, nor frequented by the showy, and no out-of-character attractions have been developed for tourists, so compared with the crowded tourist islands of Capri and Ischia, and the chic atmosphere of some of the Aeolian Islands, Favignana and its Egadi siblings have a refreshing simple authenticity.

2077052169_e785376409_b

Favignana’s shape is often fancifully compared to a butterfly; it is composed of two flat stretches of land on either side of a high rocky spine, topped by a decaying fortress. Ferries arrive at Favignana town, the only substantial settlement on the island. The town is situated on the eastern side of the island, which is connected to the western side by a road-tunnel through the hill which divides the two plains.

Egadi Islands Favignana

The plentiful tuna fish found offshore were first exploited systematically under the Spanish from about the 17th century onwards. Facing severe financial problems from their ongoing wars, the Spanish sold the islands to the Marquis Pallavicino of Genoa in 1637. The Pallavicini substantially developed the economy of the island, prompting the establishment of the modern town of Favignana around the Castello San Giacomo. In 1874, the Pallavicino family sold the Aegadian Islands to Ignazio Florio, the son of a wealthy mainland industrialist, for two million liras. He invested heavily in Favignana and built a major tuna cannery on the island, bringing prosperity to many of the inhabitants. Calcarenite quarries were also opened with stone being exported to Tunisia and Libya.

Etna Volcano

Etna Volcano

Mount Etna (/ˈɛtnə/; Italian: Etna [ˈɛtna] or Mongibello, Sicilian: Mungibeddu or â Muntagna, Latin: Aetna) is an active stratovolcano on the east coast of Sicily, Italy, in the Province of Catania, between Messina and Catania. It lies above the convergent plate margin between the African Plate and the Eurasian Plate. It is the tallest active volcano in Europe,[2] currently 3,329 m (10,922 ft) high, though this varies with summit eruptions.

 

L'Etna_vista_dalla_campagna_di_Randazzo

 

It is the highest mountain in Italy south of the Alps. Etna covers an area of 1,190 km2 (459 sq mi) with a basal circumference of 140 km. This makes it by far the largest of the three active volcanoes in Italy, being about two and a half times the height of the next largest, Mount Vesuvius. Only Mount Teide in Tenerife surpasses it in the whole of the European–North-African region.[3] In Greek Mythology, the deadly monster Typhon was trapped under this mountain by Zeus, the god of the sky and thunder and king of gods, and the forges of Hephaestus were said to also be located underneath it.[4]

Palermo

Palermo

Palermo, the regional capital of Sicily, is one of those cities with its own very distinct, almost tangible atmosphere, a place of mystery where reality often outperforms the traveller’s imagination and preconceived stereotypes. It is a buzzing Mediterranean centre whose 1 million inhabitants are a fascinating cocktail of apparently conflicting characteristics.

Palermo’s history has been anything but stable as the town passed from one dominating power to another with remarkable frequency. Its strategic position in the middle of the Mediterranean brought wave upon wave of invaders including the Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Saracen Arabs, the Normans, the Swabians, the French and the Spanish Bourbons just to name the most influential. The result of this quilted history is evident today in the vast range of architectural styles, the intriguing fusion of ingredients used in many local dishes and in many place names which are obviously not of Italian origin.

Italy - Palermo - puppet museum (crop & enhance)

Visiting Palermo is still somewhat of an adventure in a world where so many places have become tourist-friendly to a fault. You won’t find many restaurants with menus translated into 5 different languages, you may have trouble communicating in English in many places, and some parts of the old town centre have remained untouched since they were bombed during the war. There are many back streets that have only just opened up to those from without and it is still often difficult to obtain any information worth having. However, this is also a stimulus to those who wish to embark on a little adventure, to discover things for themselves, to dig into the very fabric of the city and to try to understand what really makes Palermo (and its people) tick.

Trapani Segesta best beautiful Greek archaeological sites

Segesta (Ancient Greek: Ἔγεστα Egesta;[1] Sicilian: Siggésta) was one of the major cities of the Elymian people, one of the three indigenous peoples of Sicily. The other major cities of the Elymians were Eryx and Entella.

It is located in the northwestern part of Sicily in Italy, near the modern comune of Calatafimi-Segesta in the province of Trapani.seg

The countryside leading up to the Segesta site is gorgeous especially in May when all the fields are in bloom with flowers and it’s not too hot. Worth taking the shuttle bus to the ampitheater…one of few left without modern seating added.

This temple is one of the most stunning sights I have seen! It dates back in the 4th century and noone knows why it was never finished. Not only the temple itself, but tbe surrounding nature is going to leave you speechless.
