“Worth a quick visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

We took a walk through the pharmacy and enjoyed the museum area and gardens. 30-45 minutes was plenty of time for us to see what we wanted to see here.

“Quick visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Beautiful cloister, some afrescos and paintings. Well preserved pharmacy in the museum, with old instruments used in the past. There is a pharmacy working in the entrance, that claims be the oldest one in Europe. Quick visit, about 30 minutes to see all.

“Serene and beautiful”

Beautiful frescoes on the wall and a silent and serene setting. A welcome respite from the heat and a chance to visit the oldest pharmacy in Europe.

“An oasis of quiet between the tour parties”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

This is a superb survivor, the courtyard and cloisters are exquisite, and then there is the original pharmacy as an added bonus. Unmissable.

“A trip through time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

The sight of ancient manuscripts and old paintings was a great revelation and was like a trip through time.

It also housed an inventory of an old pharmacy.

A truly great experience.
