Gela
The Essential
Founded by settlers from Crete and Rhodes in the early 7C BC in one of Sicily's most fertile areas, Gela became a prosperous city with great cultural influence. Having been destroyed several times, the town was completely rebuilt by Frederick II in 1230. Today, the economy of this town, where Aeschylus spent the last years of his life, is largely dependent on the oil industry, which has considerably altered the environment here.
