About this spot
Just like the castle of Venere, the “Torretta Pepoli” is also located on a small promontory. Recent maintenance works have made it easy for visitors to access, who can visit the premises and better appreciate it.
The Pepoli Tower is one of the most representative monuments of Erice. Feel the charm, the traditions and its history as well as beauty and wonder as you walk through the ancient streets of this little village.
The importance of Erice for a photographer is highlighted in Wikipedia from which I quote “The main town of Erice is located on top of Mount Erice, at around 750 metres (2,460 ft) above sea level, overlooking the city of Trapani, the low western coast towards Marsala, the dramatic Punta del Saraceno and Capo San Vito to the north-east, and the Aegadian Islands on Sicily's north-western coast. Casa Santa forms part of Erice at the base of Mount Erice, immediately adjacent to Trapani. A cable car joins the upper and lower parts of Erice.”
