Agrigento is a town on the southern coast of Sicily.The city was founded on a plateau overlooking the Mediterranean around 580 BC by Greek colonists.The geographic features, namely the plateau itself and it's proximity to two nearby rivers and a ridge to the north, offered a natural degree of protection against invasion. The original name for the town was Akragas, and it grew to become one of the richest cities in the Greek empire.
