About
Jewish Cemetery in Piazza dei Miracoli, visible from the top of the Ancient Walls, is characterized by a variety of architectural styles. Active since 1674 and still in use today, it was preceded by other Jewish Cemeteries, testified by epigraphic traces on the Walls. It reflects four centuries of Pisan Jewish settlement, including stories of Jewish victims of Nazi-fascist persecutions

Seeing this edifice in pictures since I was little, it was fascinating to see it in person and admire the beautiful design as well as its nearly 4 degree tilt. When you think that the structure is shy of 1,000 years old (began building in the 12th century and finished in the 14th century), it's just simply amazing, and the detail/effort that went into building it is tremendous. You can climb to the top via 296 fairly steep steps that are slanted and through centuries of wear, are a little slippery if they get wet.

All the buildings there are known as the Field Of Miracles. It is worth a trip yet, IMO, after 2 or so hours, you're likely satisfied, and then it's time to go. We took a train from Florence to Pisa. Then had an easy 20-minute walk to the area.

Other than the summer heat of Italy and the crowds, it was a nice experience overall. If you eat while you are there, consider walking a block or two away from the tourist trap restaurants and taste some local foods.

Seeing the cemeteries in and around Europe is eye opening to discover how, even though everyone loves a label these days it's important to remember that we all have lots of similar wacky rituals that we conduct including burial rights and headstones.
The actual Jewish cemetery is only open at short times that I've put into the photos. Unfortunately we didn't know this until we turned up, so if like us you turn up and get stuck, head to the corner by the cemetery on the inside of the walls and pay the €3 to get up top to see it from above. You can't get tickets from the museum like for the other things to do here for the Jewish cemetery and the approach is lined with looky looky men and souvenir stands. There is a McDonald's here that offers a toilet for free for their customers that have their receipt and €0.50 for everyone else. Impressive from the air, looks good in the photos on here from the ground too.

The Hebraic cemetery in Pisa is the most ancient Jewish burial ground which is still in use. The cemetery was designed here in the 17th century by the order of Cosimo III. The oldest tombs have the Hebraic inscription on one side and the Spanish or Portuguese on the other, because most of these families were expelled from the Iberian Peninsula in the 15th century. It was an interesting and moving visit.

This cemetery was established in 1674 by Cosimo III d'Medici. Some of the tombstones from the older cemeteries he then used for hunting grounds, were brought here. It is still in use today and is well worth a visit. I believe it is open Sunday and Wednesday

The Jewish Cemetery in Pisa was established in 1648, and is one of the oldest in Europe. We were told that the inscriptions on the tombstones are in many different languages, not just Hebrew. The cemetery is located just outside the Piazza dei Miracoli. To find it you must go outside the city walls, behind the Baptistry. Turn right and follow the wall, and it will be on your right hand side. If you pass Burger King on the left, you have gone too far. If you would like to walk around inside the cemetery and see why it is important for its artistic value, visit on a Sunday or Wednesday, when the gates are open.
