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.

  • the place is less frequent, maybe "cemetery" is not very engaging... the place is yet interesting: remnants of beautiful monumental frescoes, hollowing out of the graves. A peaceful place, dare I...

  • We bought the ticket (I think 7 € adults, free for children under 9 years) cumulative for the various attractions that are all worth a visit. The view from outside is still the best.

  • I went many times to the Pisa Tower, the Batistere and the Duomo, but I never noticed this beautiful place, behind the white wall next to the other three. So, this time, I went, and I was amazed. A pure place and strangely little frequented. At the top of the walls, lace! Sarcophagi all around and of the graves, and in the Middle a meadow with flowers. If you go to Pisa, after the leaning tower, the Baptistry and Duomo, above all, visit the Camposanto.

  • 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.
