In the western part of Sicily on the top of the mountain in the clouds, at an altitude of 750 meters above sea level the charming castle soars.

According to legend, Eryx (Erice), son of the goddess of love and fertility Venus, built on top of the mountain majestic temple in honor of his mother, and thus founded the city, which was named after him.

In the XII century the castle surrounded by high walls was built on the place of the temple. Nowadays, the castle is owned by municipality of Erice and it is the venue for wedding ceremonies by the sea.


Representatives of the mayor's office conducted the wedding ceremony on the terrace of the castle. It offers stunning views of the city of Trapani, its salt marshes, of the Sicilian countryside from Erice to Capo San Vito, and the outlines of the islands Egadi act on the horizon. It's better to admire the breathtaking view at sunset, but the wedding ceremony in the castle by the sea is both exciting and peaceful.....
