Molfetta's historical center used to be an island - the Island of Saint Andrew, to be exact - and it sticks out into the sea about two-thirds of the way around. Along the side facing inland there is a high wall. There are many bars, shops and social clubs (think along the lines of the Soldiers Mutilated in the Great War club, not dinner and dancing!) built into rooms along the base of the wall.
These photos show the exterior and a slice of the interior of the Elios Erboristeria, located at the southernmost point of the walls, on the corner of Piazza Municipio. An "erboristeria" is an herbalist's shop. They sell all kinds of products ranging from actual herbs to natural remedies for a long list of various and sundry ailments to cosmetics, soaps and perfumes.
