The essence of the Charm.

A hotel is not just a place to sleep. La Pineta Park Hotel is an environment created to give you the opportunity to live a stay experience surrounded by nature and history. Because the name of Erice is lost over the centuries and has always been a destination for travelers. The mountain, which overlooks the Trapani coast, has always intertwined its name with the goddess of love and beauty. Diodorus Siculus wrote that “Erice”, son of Bute and Aphrodite herself, had founded the city and erected the temple dedicated to her mother.

Over the centuries, in this ancient sanctuary, the cult of the female deity of fertility assumed different names. First came the Phoenicians, who called it Astarte. The name was also adopted by the Elimi, while it was changed to Tanit by the Carthaginians and in Aphrodite by the pelasgians. The arrival of the Romans led to the last transformation: the new masters of the world rebuilt the temple by dedicating it to Venus.

A destination for travelers and heroes

Virgil, in the Aeneid, tells how Aeneas, when his old father Anchise passed away, buried him right on Mount Erice, where great ceremonies took place in his honor. Aeneas, also the son of Venus as the legendary founder, erected on the mountain, for the divine mother, “a seat close to the stars”. Also in the Aeneid it is told how Enea, after this stop ericina, reflected for a long time whether to continue his journey or stop in Sicily. The charm of this mountain had also bewitched the epic hero.
