Lovely little church in a lovely little town. Nice museum next door too. Godfather fans will want to go for obvious reasons.

driving - Loved the twisty hairpin bends getting to it. For Satnav we used Forza d'Argro piazza della Triade. Brings you to the top of the hill with a café in front of you. Take a left, brings you to the car park (you need to pay)and you can see this church literally off the square. Didn't go in but a pretty location. Lots of cafe's about. Stay parked here as the other Godfather church is around the corner. Best to do this in a coach tour or to drive yourself.

I enjoyed this little church for the many ways it used to depict the Trinity. Fabric, marble, wood, oil paintings are all used. The walk to the church thru the old arch way, and the view are special extras.

Being a huge godfather fan this was a real treat to see where the movie was filmed. No wonder Frances Ford Coppola chose this location as it is rustic yet beauty all around.

We had our driver take us there which was arranged by our hotel and his knowledge of the area was do derail. Well worth the movie spent

First, driving up to Forza is a small adventure. It's perched on the hilltop, almost 500 m above sea level, so there's a steep zigzag road leading to it, with several nice spots along the way for great pics.
Once up, there's a nice terrace overlooking the bay with splendid views.
But, you're there for the Trinity Church where Coppola shot a scene from iconic Godfather movie. There're thousands of similar churches across Italy, which you surely won't ever visit, but this became famous thanks to its movie role.
The same is applicable to the entire village. Among hundreds of similar only in Sicily, this and Savoca (another movie spot) are packed with people and their restaurants and cafes are full.
The Church itself is old (15 cent) and nice, specially seen from down the street, with a staircase and a gate in front of it. The inside is plain, in white with few icons and decorations.
