 Monte Erice (West side)   

Monte Erice, or ancient Greek Mount Eryx, is a mountain of Sicily, in the province of Trapani. In ancient times the mountain was occupied by the Elymians and subsequently by the Carthaginians, the Greeks, and the Romans, who worshipped Aphrodite Erycina, or Venus Erycina, there. In 1117 it was renamed as Monte San Giuliano by the Normans. The original name was restored in 1934. Since 1954, the Monte Erice hillclimbing championship has taken place on its slopes every year.
