The Old Pharmacy is located in the Franciscan Monastery which is on the left hand side just through the Pile Gate. The Pharmacy was used by the Franciscan monks to treat the brothers as well as the citizens of Dubrovnik. It is considered to be the oldest Pharmacy in Europe and is worth a visit, if you are interested in history and beautiful old buildings. It 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. There you'll find disturbingly large grinders and implements used by the medical profession in the Ragusan era. The colourful ceramic pots can be viewed on the open shelves and there is quite a collection. We visited on a rainy day and it is free if you have a Dubrovnic card.
