Just one sketch this week from a recent day trip, so I'll show you some photographs and take you on a virtual tour!
Erice (Eryx) is an old town with mythical origins, sitting on top of a mountain overlooking the sea.
There are two castles, one built on the ruins of an ancient temple of Venus.
Visiting this town is like going back in time as you wander through its cobbled streets and past medival churches.
