Porto Empedocle, a seaside village in the Agrigento area, is famous throughout the world for being the birthplace of the writer Luigi Pirandello and for being the place where the writer Andrea Camilleri set the story of his popular commissioner Montalbano: Vigata.
The small village is linked to the name of the great masters of Italian literature. In it there is the Strada degli Scrittori an itinerary that invites you to retrace the places lived and loved by the writers Pirandello, Camilleri, Sciascia and Tomasi di Lampedusa.
The symbol of the village is the Torre Carlo V, built in the 16th century, when the town was a defensive outpost. The Bourbons later transformed the tower into a prison.
