Camposanto, Pisa

(4.3/5 based on 900+ 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.

  • For me the least known but most beautiful piazza dei miracoli. Important frescoes. Deserves it!

  • This is a huge walled and covered cemetery that also has some frescoes and statues that have survived fires and WW II bombing. I found the tombs fascinating and haven't seen another cemetery like this...  more »
  • A must see along with the whole complex of piazza dei miracoli. Convenient filled with clubs close where you can have lunch.

  • 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.
