Erice’s Mother Church

The exterior of Erice’s Chiesa Matrice, or Mother Church, is modest, yet elegant. Built during Norman times in 1314, its bell tower is detached because its primary purpose was to be a lookout tower to spot potential invaders. #erice #trapani #chiesamatrice #motherchurch #normanarchitecture #architecture #architettura #campanile #belltower #tower #torre #sicily #sicily_travel #sicilia #sicily_tourism #italy #ig_sicily…
