Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica

A Renaissance-era perfume pharmacy

Save to my Account

In business since 1612, this combination perfumery/pharmacy still sells remedies, dietary supplements, smelling salts and digestive aids, based on concoctions developed by the monastery’s Dominican friars since 1221.

A variety of potions purport to cure ailments such as hysterics and joint pain, as well as assisting in weight loss.

A free museum goes into the history of perfumery/pharmacy.
