Cemetery Historic Site
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.

  • Start with the campo santo. Usually visitors and crowds are at the piazza. So take some decent time to observe the interior and enjoy the art on the walls too!
  • Relax and take some time to appreciate the statues and the frescoes around.
  • 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.
