hollygoeslightly We pootled away from golden Trapani and up, up, up into the clouds (literally) where atop Mount Erice sits the medieval city of the same name. There is some debate over how old Erice is, though records talk about it being conquered in 831! The town is named after the Greek gods of Eryx. One Eryx was son of Aphrodite, and who died in a boxing fight with Hercules. Another was turned to stone by Perseus with the head of the Gorgon Medusa. Everything about this town, from its history and age to its place in the clouds to its view of the Sicilian coast to its cobblestone streets is truly magical.
