Erice is just that kind of town. Nothing takes your breath away but everything exudes such elegance and charm, you just want to let it seep in. Chiesa Madre is another of such example. The exterior takes you back centuries and reminds you of a...More

Also called the "Mother Church" it's a beautiful church in a medieval town. Cost is 2 euros, but worth it. Stunning architecture and interior.

A highlight to visit. Do not miss stunning architecture and interiors. Buying a pass ticket for various monuments is good value.

I visited the Duomo on my own and was quite impressed. The church looks imposing from the outside, but is quite bright and airy on the inside. The plaster ceiling is worth a look on its own. 10 or 15 minutes will probably do it...More

A fairly stark cathedral but beautifully decorated ceiling. The adjoining bell tower was fun to climb - all included in the 6 euro "passe-partout" ticket that you can buy. This gives you access to 5 of the major churches in town, including the bell tower....More

This church has a very unique and beautiful vaulted ceiling with intricate stucco work that resembles lace. We have never seen anything like it before. The adjacent tower was worth the climb for the excellent views from above.

Stunning, which surprised me given the plain and uninspiring exterior. I so nearly didn’t go in at all. Everyone who entered gasped at the ornate and pale cream interior. It is certainly not like the many other Duomos I have seen in Italy.
