Thursday Doors in Forza d’Argo, Sicily

Good morning Thursday Door friends! Today we are in Forza d’Argo for our door review……….We have been following the footsteps of the Godfather in Sicily, meaning we have toured two of the villages where scenes from the Godfather films were made. The village of Forza d’Argo was used to represent the Corleone family village before the Godfather came to America. I can say one thing, all the villages,  are way up on the mountain top and remote. So, without further ado  I give you the village! Starting in the newer parts……..

There were lots of potted plants here so I had to get them in too………….

This was the old ruins that at one time was a wall of defense surrounding the St Trinity Church.

  2. Love all these doors but, especially, the one in your fourth photo of the church in Forza d’Agro, Sicily, because it reminds me of my beloved childhood church, Christ Episcopal Church in Pensacola, Florida. And the little St. Francis courtyard seems a charming spot to stop, maybe sit crosslegged to pray the rosary.
