Aeneas, Hercules and Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. These characters that myth has gathered around the ancient village of Erice mark the spirit of a mountain rich in history and legends. It majestically rises above Trapani, in the west corner of Sicily island. There is an old castle on the top of this mountain. At first, it was a temple dedicated to the goddess Venus. Millennia have only scratched the patina of myth.
