Important cities of Sicily: Forza d'agro

| Archive |

Anyone coming to Forza d’Agrò gets a surprise. And what surprises one first (and we know this from direct testimony) is the landscape: its panoramas are even more beautiful than those of Taormina.

Who can say more than that? But we do know from direct testimony that its panoramas are even more beautiful than those of Taormina, which is really saying something!
There are so many things to see, starting from the churches, like San Michele Arcangelo, San Sebastiano, Sant’Antonio and Maria Bambina of which only a few traces remain.

The Cathedral is an imposing one, dedicated to Maria Annunziata Assunta, built in the fifteenth century and rebuilt after the 1648 earthquake, and has works showing refined facture like the Santissimo Crocifisso wooden cross from the 12th century (celebrations on 14 September), and also a Baroque façade in which there is set a portal entirely done in sandstone.
Also from the 13th century is the Durazzesco Arch and the Santissima Trinità and San Francesco churches.
