Agrigento "The site boundary includes (...) the complex network of underground aqueducts" (Official description) - Northwest of the sanctuary of the chthonic deities, a valley cuts through the southern range of hills. It is assumed that the large water basin known as Kolymbéthra, which served to supply the city with water, was also located here. After the basin silted up, fertile orchards and vegetable gardens emerged, the Gardens of Kolymbéthra. The underground water channels and aqueducts that supplied water to the city in ancient times can still be seen today and are now used to irrigate the gardens.
