Stop At: Erice Taxi, Erice, Province of Trapani, Sicily

Visit to the medieval village of Erice, a cult of love and virginity. Famous in its antiquity for its sanctuary on top of the mountain to which the sailors addressed: the temple of the Goddess.
You walk on the esplanade of the magnificent fortress, often beaten by foggy waves that thicken and thin out almost suddenly.
We look for something that can make us think of an outdoor altar, like a "false well of Aphrodite".
And we remain, however, stunned by a place that myth, vestiges and nature make it whirling and mysterious sensuality.

Of Phoenician origin, the Arab geographer al-Idrīsī documents the presence of salt pans already in the period of Norman domination in Sicily. Under the reign of Frederick of Swabia, the state monopoly on salt production was established, which continued even during the Angevin domination. The Aragonese later ratified the return to private property, but it was under the Spanish crown that the salt production activity reached its peak, transforming the port of Trapani into the most important European trade center for the precious element. The salt pans from Trapani reached the islands of the Stagnone.
In the photo above the Salt Museum of Nubia, in the photo below the Infersa mill.
From 1861 with the Unification of Italy these salt pans were not nationalized, and they were the only ones to overcome the monopoly of the salt by the State, exporting it to different countries. After the First World War with the competition of the industrialized salt pans of Cagliari began the decline of the Trapani salt pans, accentuated by the outbreak of the Second World War and by foreign competition with rock salt. Many of the salt pans were abandoned or abandoned.
