The history of Perello's shrine
the apparition of Virgin Mary, the unbelievable growth of an olive tree on an arid log and the beginning of the construction of the shrine in Perello are dated back 1413 in the middle age.
Wise old men say that Rigosa's inhabitants didn't want to build the shrine on the chosen site, because it was too uncomfortable and therefore they began to build it on another site, which was set apart, but easily reachable. However The Virgin Mary began to carry stones on the place she chose and inhabitants, without hesitating, brought them back on their chosen site.
These facts went on for several days and The Virgin Mary imposed her will and the shrine was built where she wanted.
