In the sixteenth century, an epidemic of swine fever made great ravages and praying this saint, the plague stopped. He was then edified a statue on a large oak. In 1850, this tree died of old age. Before slaughtering it, the statue was lowered and put under cover. The inhabitants of the town, worried about the fate of St. Anthony, erected a chapel.
