The Sanctuary of Saint Mary of Tresto at Ospedaletto Euganeo stands at the site of the miraculous apparition to Giovanni Zelo, who was instructed by the Madonna to plunge a knife into the earth and pull it out, causing blood to gush forth. Giovanni showed the miracle to others, persuading them to build a temple to the Madonna. While construction was going on, a terrible drought struck the area and the people had no water. The population prayed to the Madonna for aid and a spring appeared next to the church. Over the centuries its miraculous waters have cured many people.
