This magnificent and unique medicine chest was made for Vincenzo Giustiniani (d. 1570), the last Genoese governor of the island of Chios in the eastern Aegean Sea. He ruled Chios from 1562 until the Turks expelled the Genoese in 1566 after an occupation of some two hundred years. On a box from the middle drawer is painted the symbol of Chios – a black eagle above a three-towered castle. The chest contains 126 bottles and pots for drugs, some of which still have their original contents.
EXPERIENCE THE GRAND TURK FLOWRIDER® The Grand Turk FlowRider® is offered as a shore excursion, which is sold through your cruise line and is the only attraction of its kind at a cruise port facility. The FlowRider® operates by creating an artificial wave, utilizing a pair of high-pressure water pumps that produce two- to three-inch layer of water moving over a pre-formed and cushioned surface at high speed.
