Our Patron

Any person with roots in Guardiaregia knows of their grandparents' devotion to "San Nicola" (Saint Nicholas,) who has been Guardiaregia protector for centuries. In major "Guardiole" communities such as Palisades Park, New Jersey and Toronto, Ontario (Canada), our "paesani" have even built churches in his honor!

Below is a photo gallery of the Chaples and Church which the Guardioli have built throughout the centuries. All photos are part of the italyMONDO! (www.italymondo.com) FOTOarchive, except for the Toronto Church of Saint Nicholas, which was tinformation found below.)
