It was built a temple dedicated to the Virgin, who was also called Virgin of the Carmel.
This temple became insufficient for the many pilgrims who went there, so many hermits went through Palestine and East, to divulge the Virgin’s rite.
Around 1150 were born many carmelitan monasteries and, when the crusaders returned, the monasteries spread also in West. (Sicily, England)
