Favignana

Favignana , the largest of the three islands, is famous for its choreographic beaches and the crystal clear waters that surround it. Here you can explore the suggestive sea caves, snorkel or simply relax on the beach enjoying the sun and sea breeze.

What to see in Erice

Among the numerous churches, it is a must to visit the Royal Cathedral built in the 14th century in 14th century Gothic style on a pre-existing chapel dedicated to the Virgin of the Assumption.
Next to, but separate from the Cathedral, stands the Bell Tower originally with military lookout functions, built by King Frederick probably on the remains of a military tower from the Punic period. One hundred and ten steps to climb in one go to enjoy an extraordinary view.

The thousand-year-old Elymian-Punic Walls of the 7th century BC extend from the square in front of the Cathedral, called Cyclopean walls due to their extraordinary dimensions. By following the itinerary of the walls you can also admire part of the forest that surrounds the city.

If you love trekking and walking we suggest you visit the Cai Erice headquarters: Information point for the paths and reception. The panoramic view from its terrace is wonderful.
