E' a basiliano convent of the millecento, one of the little that remain in feet in the Calabrie. The Madonna is sicialian work of century XVI, carved in the tufo and colored, with two eyes black, fixed white men and, that they watch from all the parts. Around to the church there is the convent, with little friars seekers that go for the aie, the grape harvests, the trappeti, to make the begging pel convent that is alone in mountain and alive of the charity of all. Around to the sanctuary, from centuries, sicialian community and calabrians have constructed houses for ricoverare their citizens in the days of the festivity that falls between the 1 and the 3 September. This our Madonna that it does not have null of cake, but of urgent, nobody can move it from its niche without that the earthquake happens, and for being able to carry it in processione, poichè not is festivity without processione, if n' it is made one copy, but lighter and not therefore beautiful. This cult nacque in way of all the fabulous one. There is of means a king, the Conte Ruggiero, one hunting, levrieri, a miracle. Going the Conte Ruggiero on the Aspromonte to hunting, it felt its levrieri to scream far away. It noticed found an ox that knelt down frugava with the snout the earth.
