The experience begins at the Aboca Museum dedicated to medicinal plants. Discover precious herbals, ancient mortars, pottery, glassware, and other faithful reproductions of precious objects made by hand by skilled artisans which retrace the history of the ancient apothecary art.

Next, admire the extraordinary collection of the Bibliotheca Antiqua: 2,500 books documenting the development of knowledge on the healing use of plants published since the earliest years of printing up to the first decades of the 20th century.

Experience with all your senses the quality of carefully selected seasonal produce and local delicacies such as cold cuts, butchery products, cheeses, honey, wines, legumes and extra virgin olive oil.
