OINTMENTS AND REMEDIES. THE MONASTERY PHARMACY (Experience in the Monastery)
Summer smells of herbs. And this is the time to harvest and dry them, and the monks of Sant Benet were real specialists in this. We suggest a trip that will begin in the vegetable gardin, and continue to the interior spaces of the monastery where we can know which were the most appreciated herbs for health care but also discover places that have been forgotten by the passage of time, like the infirmary where we will find out how sick monks were treated.
We will end our visit by practicing the wisdom of herbs and discovering the properties of essential oils while preparing an ointment with beeswax and a massage oil that we can take home.
At Món Sant Benet we are eager to share with you its unique environment you and that is why we are prepared with all the necessary security measures to ensure that you can enjoy the visit with maximum safety.
