  • Take a trip back in time and come and visit a remarkable 19th-centurye apothecary incorporated into the front of the Hospital de Santo António, a national monument whose origins date back over 200 years. From a rare collection of cupboards to pots, jars, tinctures, weighing scales and formula books, there are many objects which will take you back to the therapies of the age. In another area dedicated to the pharmacy of the Hospital Joaquim Urbano you can find out about the history, people, techniques and progress made in producing registered medicines at this important hospital specialising in infectious and pulmonary diseases. Every month we look at one particular item from the huge institutional holdings for a more in-depth examination of the area of health sciences.
