Some Indians were carrying the image of Our Lady of Saint Anne to a somewhat distant place in Honduras.

They passed through Santa Ana at night and decided to sleep in a large ceiba tree located in the only square of the place, called at that time Sihuatehuacan.

The next day at dawn, they wanted to lift the image to continue their pilgrimage, but something was happening that prevented them from continuing their journey.

The Virgin became very heavy and it was impossible to move her, so they decided to leave her at that site. Later, a hermitage was built there, and then a church.
