Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella - Florence


As you wander around the Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella museum, you will feel a magical atmosphere radiating from its rooms, which are arranged almost exactly as they were in the 13th century. The Farmaceutica was founded by Dominican monks in 1221, and it was here that the flowers and herbs from their gardens were transformed into ointments, powders and healing dyes. To this day, you can still buy soaps, perfumes and body care products that are made according to the monks’ recipes. In any case, the museum is definitely worth a look!
