Paul of the Cross and John Baptist left Castellazzo on the first Sunday of Lent in 1722. They reached Monte Argentario on Holy Thursday, 2nd April 1722. After Easter they stayed at the hermitage of the Annunication in solitude and prayer. On the weekends they would come down to the fishing towns of Porto’Ercole and Porto San Stefano at the foot of the mountain. There they attended Mass and taught catechism.
