This tower, symbol of Erice, takes its name from its builder, Count Agostino Pepoli, who built it around 1870.
The count made an agreement with the administration of the village according to which he would rebuild the towers of the Castle of Venus and those would have been his home.
In this place he also built the English garden and this tower, which became an ideal place for his meditations, thanks to the silence that surrounds it, and ideal meeting place for men of culture and artists such as Ugo Antonio Amico, the musicologist Alberto Favara, the archaeologist Antonino Salinas, the minister Nunzio Nasi and many others.
Recently the tower has been restored and used as a multimedia interactive museum on the history and identity of Erice.
