Camposanto, Pisa

4.4
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 travelers who use our custom trip planner, Pisa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Camposanto and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Camposanto overturns our idea of the cemetery as a dark and intimidating place, so be sure to visit if you've made it to Wonderland Square. It does not look like a cemetery per se, although there are quite fresh burials. It is more of an archaeological museum decorated with ancient frescoes. Camposanto allows the tourist to break away from the hustle and bustle in the cool and silence for a few minutes, admiring the beauty of human hand creation.

  • Spent 30 minutes wandering around looking at the walls and sculptures. Don't miss this one for some peace and wonderful art.  more »

  • This was much more open than the main area of the piazza. It was very interesting to see. Purchase the ticket to get into all of the areas around the compound, not just the tower.
  • Such a fantastic piece of architecture and the walls are spectacular! Highly recommended visiting this place if you are in Pisa.
