The apostle exhausted by the shipwreck and thirsty, approached a well of fresh water that stood at the foot of a statue depicting a pagan god (it is thought it was Zeus). He then turned to the sculpture making the sign of the cross and it crumbled at his feet.

To remember this legend, the town not only added the name of the saint in its toponym, but also built a small church dedicated to the same.
