The Shrine is located near the Archaeological Park of the temple dedicated to Hera Lacinia: The current structure was erected by the basil monks around the sixteenth century; during those years it was the destination of many pilgrims to ask for grace and protection from calamities, especially that of rain. It is said that the icon representing the Virgin of the Cape was stolen by the Turks during a looting at another church, they attempted to burn it but this resisted the flames and was later thrown into the sea.
