Cobbled street

Erice is a medieval walled town perched on top of Mt. San Giuliano. The locals call their town 'u Munti, the mountain.

 

It is often shrouded in mist, known as il velo di Venere (the veil of Venus). The cobbled streets are often slippery after a rain or in thick fog. They were most probably paved in the late 19th century.

 

The greyish stone houses date mostly from the 14th-17th centuries.
