  • THE museum of mint and medicinal plants is located in Pancalieri where 50% of Italian mint is grown, especially the so-called "piperita" variety. At the beginning of the last century there were 70 distilleries for the extraction of essential oil, now in the surrounding area are grown about twenty medicinal plants required for pharmaceutical and cosmetic preparations. Fun fact: every three or four years the fields rotate, but mint cannot return to the same field for about 15 years. The museum is visited by reservation and despite the low turnout of the moment they have made themselves available to open the property with guided tour.

  • Living a few hundred meters from this museum, I do not want to be too biased, but what sees a stranger in this small museum of mint and medicinal herbs, does not see it anywhere else in the world!!! Try to believe!!!

  • Small but suggestive. Photos, videos and dried plants to understand what it was like and what it's like to produce mint syrup and more.

  • An interesting museum. Free entrance. A path in which the culture and the life of the local inhabitants is explained, linked to the cultivation of the mint. Beautiful photos to testimony.
