Made by Association of the "Elimo-Ericini" Municipalities

At the westernmost point of Sicily, there where the Mediterranean and Tyrrhenian Seas meet, history and myth conspire to bring to life an incomparable and fascinating ambience.

Erice, the mountain known for centuries as "San Giuliano", towers over a mild valley suffused with a common history of customs, symbiotic lifestyle and civility.

During a spontaneous and leisurely economic and social development involving the countryside of Erice, the pervasive agricultural practice and the popular devotional sentiment have determined the rise of settlements around courtyards and sanctuaries in small villages and maritime towns whose growth have facilitated the rise of urban centers, now become autonomous Communes.

A history begun centuries ago, yet still flourishing today. A history written in the pathways of Nature, on the crystalline seas, on the walls of courtyards and towers, on the naked earth under the clear sky.

A history that is the patrimony of each individual town and of all who, whether fom Paceco to Valderice, from Buseto Palizzolo to Custonaci out to San Vito Lo Capo, daily ehert themselves to render eternal legends and myths and to preserve from oblivion one of Sicily`s most fascinating locales.
