The sanctuary contains a collection of ceramic votive offerings dating from 1600 to today. These
polychrome tablets, dedicated to the Madonna dei Bagni, are a unique example both of popular religious feeling and of the development of ceramics in Deruta. Located near the sanctuary there are stalls and various attractions.
