Its origins are linked to an ancient church dedicated to Saint Salvario, a dedication by the people of Saint Salvatore, built where today we find the sanctuary and convent. In the XV century, the church was decorated by a terracotta statue depicting the Madonna with Child and from that time on it became a sanctuary dedicated to the Virgin Mary. In 1574 the Capuccines were called to officiate and to protect this sacred place and in order to satisfy the devotional needs of the growing community it was decided to build a convent and a new sanctuary which was consecrated in 1624.
