In its place was built a somewhat bland, baroque affair, free but unenticing to walk around. The main draw is the treasury at one end, a somewhat…

Franciscan Monastery/Old Pharmacy Museum
Critics choice

One of the oldest pharmacies in Europe is, quite remarkably, still a working chemist’s for locals, and in the complex of the Franciscan Monastery where beautiful cloisters lead to the Old Pharmacy Museum by a pretty courtyard.
