  • Amazing products they have. We purchased many salves & a few infusions unavailable elsewhere. Definitely worth seeing & making a few purchase for your health.

  • If you pass through Camaldoli, it is impossible not to stop here. At least one packet of candies must be bought: the tradition of the Camaldolese monks still survives today. Entering the pharmacy you can take a dip in the past, among old recipe books and centuries-old mortars. A fascinating environment.
  • It is a very interesting pharmacy-museum. It sells industrially made products based on the ancient recipes of the Camaldolese monks. It preserves the tools used in the past, when the active and healing ingredients were extracted and handcrafted. There are copper stills, a wooden press, oil jars, apothecary scales, mortars, a hot grinder, many ceramic apothecary jars. The ancient texts relating to anatomy, physiology, chemistry, botany are very interesting and rich in explanatory images.
