The votive offerings museum is in the vicinity of the sanctuary of San Corrado Fuori Le Mura. Many votive offerings were donated by faithful community members to the sanctuary. Those offerings, either belonged to San Conrado or to other important people, are carefully arranged per type: clothes (baptisimal, marriage, military, sports, etc.), anatomical offerings (that is, object representing human body parts and usually made of silver, metal and wax), gold and silver devotional offerings, paintings, vestments, etc. Inside the church there are also some objects belonged to the honourable hermit Peter Gazzetti.
The church of San Corrado is 5 km far from the city centre of Noto, located in the scenic Valley of the Miracles. It is an XVIII century sanctuary built on the site where S. Corrado Confalonieri, the patron of the city, lived as an hermit from 1322 to 1351. The cave where he spent half of his life is still open to visitors.
The site can be reached either by walking through a stair that descends from the town of Noto or by taking the tree-lined avenue which leads to the cave and the church built nearby.
The baroque style church houses a marble statue of San Corrado, as well as a painting representing the Virgin and the Child, plus an altarpiece depicting the saint made by Sebastiano Conca. Both were made in 1759.
The religious complex also houses a small votive museum.
