“Worth a quick visit”
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”
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”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

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”
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”
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.
