At the end of the 15th century, the Virgin of “Misericordia” appeared to Isabel Besora, better known as La Pastoreta. The virgin told him what they had to do to end the plague, which was currently ravaging the area.

The citizens of Reus this time did believe it, they lit the candle as La Pastoreta had told them, and the plague disappeared.
