Province of Agrigento

The territory

The Sicani Mountains border the province to the north, the Salso river to the east and the Belice river to the west. The coast is made of high dunes of very fine sand, with some amazing sights as the Scala dei Turchi, a steep wall over the sea. The province includes also the Pelagie islands situated in the southernmost corner of Italy, 200km off from the Sicilian coast, comprising the islands of Lampedusa, Linosa and Lampione.

For some decades now in the Valley of Temples every february the "Mandorlo in Fiore" festival is held, accompanied by the International Folklore Festival. And last but not least, the great cooking traditions with such typical courses as the pasta with ricotta cheese and fava beans, the eggplant pie, the pastry based on pumpkin jam and the seafood dishes typical of Sciacca.
