Camposanto, Pisa
(4.4/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Some say the beautiful walled cemetery of Camposanto was built around a shipload of holy soil brought from Golgotha in the 12th century. The cemetery’s main feature is a vast rectangular Gothic cloister lined by arches. While most of the cemetery’s frescoes were destroyed in World War II, view the two remaining, as well as detailed sketches of the original works of art. For Camposanto and beyond, use our Pisa travel itinerary planner to get the most from your Pisa vacation.

  • Tombs, frescoes and a sacristy. We were here at midday on a sunny day and the light and shadows made for amazing photos. A quiet, reflective space away from the crowds. Highly recommended and very goo...  more »
  • The beauty of Piazza dei Miracoli is its composition: the monuments and buildings in the right place. The architectural elements are inserted harmoniously into context by creating a unique just great. Inevitable regret towards an architecture that no longer exists.

  • Unbelievable expression of a people in connection with the death. Marble is the basal rock and the frescoes are really beautiful. Site that keeps a freshness to the days of intense heat.

  • Very interesting and a bit eerie. Definitely worth a walk. Also nicely quiet which is not the case for the rest of the area.
  • Missing this on a Pisa trip is something you shouldn't do. There's a lot more to see in the area than just the tower and the Duomo. Take a stroll through, relax, and enjoy the area!
  • Amazing cemetery to walk round. A bit of peace from the crowds. Take in the detail of what you see, beautiful.
  • Fantastic place to spent am afternoon thinking whats it all about. Life. You know...life
  • Silence and tranquility, just next to the madness that is around the Tower of Pisa. I really liked walking around this place, I pretty much had it to myself. There's quite a few frescoes and it's a really nice escape from the crowds, as it looked like most tourists just skipped it altogether.
