Immersed in a picturesque environment, in silence and in total tranquility, it founded the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Noce. In San Polo, between 9 and 10 June 1505 took place two miraculous apparitions of which she witnessed a peasant girl named Joan. One day, while Joan worked in the field of family appeared a young monk of the Servants of Mary who greeted her and gave her advice on the crop.

The next day, Joan was washing away millet near a large walnut tree when suddenly in the branches of the plant appeared a beautiful and bright lady weeping calling her name. She felt immediately that you are in front of the Virgin Mary. Once interacted with the Virgin, Joan ran to San Polo to reveal what had happened in the two days; the SanPolo people immediately after these events they built in the same year a small shrine; the apparitions of the Virgin Mary and the Friar were recalled in a painting that is in the small sanctuary.
