The College of Pharmacists of Valencia

Part of The Hygeia Legacy international seminar we have visited the headquarters of the College of Pharmacists of Valencia (Muy Ilustre Colegio Oficial de Farmacéuticos de Valencia). Housed inside the charming 19th-century Fernando Ibáñez Payés urban palace, the college has a rich collection of old pharmaceutical books as well as historical artifacts connected to the production and marketing of pharmaceutical products in Spain. The institution itself is remarkable through the antiquity of the documents attesting it, from the 15th century, that make it the oldest college of pharmacists in the world.
