The Negev Pharmacy
The house where the pharmacy is located is the first two-story building from the Turkish period, it was built between 1900-1901. For the purpose of its construction, the Turks were helped by engineers from Europe who came especially to Eretz Yisrael.
The building is of special beauty, it is characterized by the arches that adorn the ceiling and it also has other architectural elements. The window openings are arched and the ceilings of the building are convex.
At the front of the building, on the second floor, there is a balcony that is accessed through three arched openings.
On both sides of the balcony there are two pairs of arched windows and an arch embraces them. Above the windows there is a small round opening, which was used to ventilate the rooms.
The building has an entrance from the street of Mordi Hagateot and there is a staircase that leads to the mezzanine and the living floor.
