  • The Civic Museum of Erice is worth a look, there are paintings of Sicilian artists of the 17th and 18th centuries really interesting, weapons, coins of the Kingdom of the two Sicilies, Greek art and religious art. Miniature Nativity scenes. Interesting and inexpensive.

  • Recently renovated, consists of 4-5 collections (archaeology, weapons, decorative arts, sculpture/painting, decorative art). Honor to the city of Erice who does find opened December 26, like other monuments, for 1 euro. In fact the price should never exceed that figure, because there are no major masterpieces except the beautiful Annunciation by Antonello Gagini of 1525 marble which is a real bonus and worth the visit alone. Among the decorative arts mark the crib with Alabaster figurine. The paintings are really small, contemporary art is to jump to footer equal while the archaeological site is interesting for the history of Erice, shame there, as elsewhere, the lights burnt out and not replaced.

  • This museum includes all those goods derived from ancient history of the town of Erice. It starts with the "archaeological section" with exhibits of prehistoric, elima, Punic, Greek and Roman; among these the most representative, the 4th century B.c. marble head of Aphrodite and a coin collection. "Decorative Arts" containing religious goods obtained by suppression of religious corporations, including: vestments, the altar frontal, cero plastic and the crib in Alabaster from the 18th century. A section devoted to "weapons" in particular of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Garibaldi, hunting white and the first world war. "Paintings and sculptures" where we find the Annunciation by Antonello Gagini of 1525 and various Sicilian painters, including several paintings by Domenico La Bruna (18th century). A section of "contemporary art" with paintings donated by Salerniana (Cultural Art Association founded in Erice in 1972). Finally, a room dedicated to temporary exhibitions, where exactly in this Christmas season, exposes the craftsman presepi trapanese Vito Romano. Truly a must see for anyone visiting the cultural cities of Erice.
