The average elevation is 338 m, with a minimum of 20 m and a maximum of 533 m. Favara is part of the agricultural region #5 Agrigento seaside hills. The local climate falls into the Csa category of the Köppen climate classification, i.e. a warm Mediterranean climate with hot and dry summers and temperate winters, with temperature rarely dropping below 0 °C.HistoryThe first signs of human habitation of the area can be dated to the late copper age, with monochrome red pottery in the Malpasso style found in a cave in contrada Ticchiara.
