Farmacia di Santa Maria della Scala
The ancient and famous spicery of Santa Maria della Scala opened at the start of the 18th Century and immediately became well known by supplying its miraculous remedies to popes and noble families. It continues today as a pharmacy, which is housed in the rooms in front of the old workshop that look onto the road. It is possible, however, to visit the rooms inside the monastery of the Carmelitani Scalzi that have remained almost intact. It is also possible to see the original recipes used by the monks and the great vases in which the spices and herbs were contained. Visits by appointment.
