Vista mozzafiato per il resto il posto potrebbe essere tenuto meglio, comunque vale la pena visitarlo anche solo per il panorama!!Breathtaking view to the rest of the place could be kept better, however it is worth visiting just for the view!show original
This old castle of Erice is marvelous. Perfect scene for a lot of Photos with a great 360 degree view over the landscape
Great for photos of landscape but there isn't that much there actually.
