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.

. The Camposanto was bombed by the Americans during the war, beautifully rebuilt. It is said that the soil in the Camposanto comes from Jerusalem and very quickly decomposes whoever is buried there... more »
Came specifically to see this, only to find out that it was closed due to an event. There was no notice on the website when I ordered my ticket, nor was any warning given. Terrible experience. 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.
