Porto Empedocle Guide

The town of Porto Empedocle on the Italian island of Sicily lies on the coast of the Strait of Sicily and has long served as the port for Agrigento, the capital of the province of the same name. There are some sites worth visiting in the town's historic centre which is characterised by narrow winding streets. Perhaps the most popular attraction in the town is its cathedral. Away from the town, the areas main attraction is the Valley of the Temples and its museum. The town's main sources of income are agriculture, fishing, ironworking, pharmaceuticals and rock salt refining.

In 2003, the town changed its official name to Porto Empedocle Vigata, after the name of the fictional town where the popular novels by Andrea Camilleri, famous Italian writer and native of Porto Empedocle, about detective Inspector Montalbano are placed.

The Agrigento region is popular with tourists in part as a result of its rich archaeological history. It also serves as an agricultural centre for the surrounding region. Sulphur and potash have been mined locally since Minoan times until the 1970s, and were exported around the world from the nearby harbour of Porto Empedocle.

Ferry services from the town's port depart to Lampedusa and Linosa.
