Farmacia Tamassia [Tamassia Pharmacy]

The pharmacy moved some years ago to its new location. On the old premises, in the historic centre of Campiglia Marittima, there still remain the fine antique furnishings dating from 1756, the year in which the pharmacy was opened. The sales area is square in shape and has shelves running along three sides. The pharmacy's antique equipment is interestingly documented by pharmaceutical jars of various make, also in alabaster, some of them kept at the new location.
