Set below the castle, therefore you don't get 360 views. I wouldn't bother paying €12 pp for the combined ticket for 5 sites in Erice.

From the outside a beautifully restored and well preserved building. The signage was outdated- said it was open and it was not. Too bad, we really want ed to see it on the inside and go up the tower.
