The Cathedral of Erice was built in the 13th century by Frederick III of Aragon.

It owes its present appearance to the various changes that have occurred over the centuries.

On the facade there is a beautiful Chiaramonte portal with zig-zag decorations.

The pronaos was built in the fifteenth century, while the staircase is from 1769.

The rose window was added only in 1954.

On the northern wall there is a beautiful Catalan portal.

Inside the Cathedral, precious 15th and 16th century sculptures are preserved, as well as a large marble icon with the Madonna on the throne with the Child, dated 1513, attributed to Giuliano Mancino.

In the left aisle, inside three sixteenth-century chapels, silver liturgical objects, sculptures and paintings of other churches and monasteries are exhibited.

The adjacent bell tower is 28 meters high.

In ancient times it was a lookout tower.

It has a square base with a side of 8 meters and rises on three floors, with single and double windows of Chiaramonte gothic art.
