19th Century Regal Pharmacy

The pharmacy shown here dates from 1857. It was a gift presented by the Spanish Reina Isabel II de Borbón when she visited Palma de Mallorca in 1852, aged 22, on her way to Menorca.

The gift was made to the Hospital Militar of Palma; the pharmacy was installed in the hospital’s annex, the former Convento de Santa Margarita

The Military Hospital has now been converted into a Municipal old people’s home; the former monastery today is transformed into Mallorca’s Archivo Regional Militar. You can see the regal pharmacy there, in Palma’s carrer Sant Miquel; admission is free.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: May 29th, 2008. The time was 12:56:18.
