Naro (Naru in Sicilian) It is an Italian town of 7.906 inhabitants of the province of Agrigento in Sicily.
The town of Naro is located at a maximum altitude of approximately 600 m s.l.m..
In its territory it flows the River Naro and there are also two reservoirs: Dam San Giovanni and Furore Dam.
A wide valley called Val Paradiso extends between the town and the Sicilian channel, beyond which some hills rise which partly cover the view of the Mediterranean Sea.
There are several hypotheses on the origins of the city and its name: the first legendary hypothesis would see the city founded by giants, first inhabitants of the island, this hypothesis is supported by Paolo Castelli and Fra Salvatore Cappuccino, the latter recalls the archive of the Royal Jurisdictional Office, sheet 1, reporting the news that: in the 15th century when the chapel of the mother church was to be built, an abundance of skulls was found in the foundations, cinnamon, teeth and other gigantic bones.
Some scholars identify it with the ancient Camico, city built by Daedalus for Cocalo, king of the Sicans, or always founded by the Sicani with the name of Indàra or Inico.
Others identify it with Akràgas Ionicum, colony of ancient Gela founded in 680 a.C., eight years after Gela itself and a full hundred years before Akragas Doricum (the current Agrigento).
During the Roman period the city, which probably bore the name of Carconiana, acquires an agricultural vocation that will characterize the history of the following centuries.
In its territory there are remains of early Christian settlements, in particular of the catacombs, and Roman villas.
San Gregorio Bishop of Agrigento was born in the territory of Naro.
