It is a nice place. A castle, but more than that it is the views that you have from there. To walk around and admire the surroundings.

If you are in San Vito Lo Capo, Erice is worth the 45 minute trip to visit. Beautiful views from the hilltop castle and town.

Like the whole country, small and enthusiastic. It seems to be back in time. Like the famous Italian film "there is nothing but the", with Roberto Benigni and Massimo Troisi, we suddenly find ourselves back in the Middle Ages. Everything is very special starting with...More

I would say about 15 minutes to walk up and down the hill plus he time of the visit (we spent about 15 minutes walking around the ruins). So about 30 minutes in total.
