When walking past take a look in the door. You will see an ‘old’ pharmacy being put to a modern use selling perfumes as well as pharmaceuticals. There are also old bottles, containers and original furniture.

Actually we did not about that place - we were strolling through the old town in the evening and saw a group with a guide inside. We did not get in but took a look through the door. Old-fashioned pharmacy that you don't see nowadays.

Beautiful interior. The pharmacist is 5th generation, warm character, English speaking and nice. Beautiful old pottery that would have held old medicines and all new medicine kept out of sight. Well worth a quick visit or if you need help
