The story of malaria

The legend that lives to this day says that St. Constance helped the diseased suffering from malaria to get well… (Jezera, Šibenik-Knin County)

On the mount of Kružak there is a church of St. Constance. Its erection was assisted by the young diseased inhabitants of the town of Lakes; they climbed the mount carrying heavy stones for the construction of the church and the surrounding wall. And so at high summer temperatures, wearing winter clothes and carrying heavy stones, as they would reach the top, they would get well. The temperature created at such efforts would make it impossible for the malaria virus to survive.

Ever since, the legend says that St. Constance helped the diseased suffering from malaria to get well.
