Torretta Pepoli from the Castle of Balio. Erice, Sicily.
Erice is located on top of Mount Erice, at around 750m above sea level, overlooking the city of Trapani, the low western coast towards Marsala, the dramatic Punta del Saraceno and Capo san Vito to the north-east, and the Aegadian Islands on Sicily’s north-western coast, providing spectacular views.
Torretta Pepoli is the smaller of the two castles in Erice. This ruined castle was originally built as hunting lodge and sits adjacent the larger Venus castle built by the Normans over the ruins of the ancient Temple of Venus Erycina.
