Porto Empedocle, Sicily, Italy

Porto Empedocle, Sicily, Italy

Porto Empedocle has long been an important fishing and trading port. You can’t miss its most prominent feature – a large tower commissioned in the 16th century by Holy Roman Emperor Charles V to protect the Agrigento territory’s reserves of grain against the pirates who haunted this coast. But the region has a much more ancient past, and is exceptionally rich in archaeological treasures associated with the city of Akragas, founded 2500 years ago by Greek colonists. For your appreciation they left behind the Valley of the Temples, site of seven monumental Greek constructions of the 5th and 6th centuries BC.
