Even if you don’t like perfume or body lotion too much, if you happen to be in the area... this store is worth a visit. Amazing architecture combined with italien taste and a glimpse into the good old times.

The sales women was really friendly and helpful... and here you might find those special desperately needed gifts for your beloved ones at home. The quality of the products speaks for itself and here you really find those unforgettable giveaways ... because our olfactory memories are the strongest! Smell olive and fig trees or almond blossom combined with the amazing salty scent of the sea...

An unusual antique farmacia, fully functioning as a modern day Pharmacy with all the staff and modern-day medications. You can see all the old medicine bottles and utensils used centuries ago by doctors and pharmacists. worth a visit, a short one in the scenic old quarter of Galipoli.

It is not a museum piece but regular, working pharmacy in the heart of the old town. As a tourist you may take a look but you should keep in mind that it is real business with local customers coming and going. The furniture dates back to the 19th century and they have got many fine pieces of antique pharmacy vessels. The room was the original entrance of the Renaissance Palazzo Pirelli. Take a look at the interesting carvings on the vaul especially the figures of Minerva and Fortuna in the middle of the ceiling.

It's a beautiful old pharmacy in one of the alleys of Gallipoli's historic city centre. It's nice to walk by and quickly look inside through the windows. But note that this is not at all a museum and the pharmacy is in use. You're not supposed to take pictures (as a lot of people did) or go inside to have a look, since people are working there! We found the place because we were actually looking for a pharmacy. We didn't notice any difference in prices from other pharmacies, as some reviewers wrote.

It's a pharmacy. It's unique and worth a quick look inside if you're passing by, but don't waste a trip specifically to see this.

If you walk along Gallipoli's lanes you can easily notice this place
Its architecture and decorations are very nice and elegant. When you enter you really feel like entering in a 19th-century shop. On the other side the prices are very high, they take advantage of the touristic location. And the variety of products is not that wide.

When walking past take a look in the door. You will see an ‘old’ pharmacy being put to a modern use selling perfumes as well as pharmaceuticals. There are also old bottles, containers and original furniture.

Actually we did not about that place - we were strolling through the old town in the evening and saw a group with a guide inside. We did not get in but took a look through the door. Old-fashioned pharmacy that you don't see nowadays.

The young pharmacist who operated from this wonderful historic shop has moved to a modern and more spacious premises. The shop door seems to be opened occasionally and you can peer through the glass doors.
