Farmacia Cheli [Cheli Pharmacy]

Founded in the first half of the 19th century, the pharmacy was moved in 1991 to its new location, opposite the old one. Of its antique furnishings there remain the sales counter and the natural wood shelves, standing along the walls. The original pharmaceutical jars and instruments were, instead, destroyed by the retreating German Army during World War II.
