*The Mercatale Pharmacy- Beauty and Herbal Cures

The Mercatale Pharmacy, a trip into the past

When in the Valdarno, do not miss the Mercatale pharmacy, which specializes in natural remedies for just about anything that ails you. People come from all over Tuscany ( and even from Rome and Milan) to stock up on the herbal cremes, beauty lotions, after-shave pomades and perfumes made by Corrado in his laboratory, situated on the Piazza just in front of the pharmacy. The antique interior is worth a trip, even if you just need asprin !
