The palace was inhabited by a nobleman, who had one son and a monkey. One day, the animal took the child and climbed to the top of the tower. The desperate father gave her prayers to Our Lady: kindly the monkey came down and brought the baby in his crib.
The crowd gathered hail as a miracle and the father from that day, as a testimony of grace received, wanted at the top of the tower a perpetual lamp.
