Learn all about the therapeutic power of herbs on a journey through the centuries-old story of the relationship between human beings and plants. Live a unique experience in one of the most beautiful historical buildings in Sansepolcro and enjoy a food tasting in Città di Castello at the end!

The experience begins at the Aboca Museum dedicated to medicinal plants. Discover precious herbals, ancient mortars, pottery, glassware, and other faithful reproductions of precious objects made by hand by skilled artisans which retrace the history of the ancient apothecary art.

Next, admire the extraordinary collection of the Bibliotheca Antiqua: 2,500 books documenting the development of knowledge on the healing use of plants published since the earliest years of printing up to the first decades of the 20th century.

Finally, reach an unusual food shop in Citta' di Castello that sells only products from small local businesses and family-run farms: not just a supermarket but a place where the authentic flavors and culinary tradition of the area can be enjoyed to the fullest!

Experience with all your senses the quality of carefully selected seasonal produce and local delicacies such as cold cuts, butchery products, cheeses, honey, wines, legumes and extra virgin olive oil.
