. 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. Many famous people are buried here, including Leonardo Fibonacci.

Could not enter due to event, wasn't notified!

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.

Great wall paintings

Just forget it used to be a graveyard, and just focus on the great wall paintings. You could spend quite a while admiring all the details (at least for the ones that are not damaged).

Camposanto – gothic cemetery with beautiful frescos from XIII century; one of a kind experience. I have never seen a cemetery that is built in the way this one was, it’s an architectural magnum opus.

Not the first church that is built on Roman graveyards.
Aug 2020
Just as the Saint Pieter in Rome the Duomo was built on the former Roman graveyard. Next to the duomo there is the holyfield the camposanto . It contains a lot of those Roman graves as well as beautiful fresco which where added in the 13 century

*TIP: visit the museum to learn more about the reconstruction*
Aug 2020 • Solo
The camposanto is very interesting and worth visiting - and I would very much recommend doing so in conjunction with the museum which reportedly tells the story of the reconstruction after the ww2 bombing.

Unfortunately for me I didn't read some of the other Tripadvisor reviews before leaving pisa - and I left the Camposanto wondering about the reconstruction. Had I known that the museum tells this story I would definitely have visited it! So something to think about doing.

Beautiful frescos, worth a trip.

It is truly the most beautiful cemetery in the world.

I have been to many cemeteries around the world, visiting the graves of famous people. Here you visit the cemetery, of which famous people are only one component. Spectacular and stimulation of deep emotions.

Although some of the frescoes have been destroyed, those remaining more than make up for it. The sarcophagi are impressive as well

Very unexpected
Jul 2020 • Solo
I have been to the top of the Tower before and therefore decided to explore other museums of the complex such as Baptistry and Cemetery. This place was very quiet, hardly any tourists! However before 19th century Camposanto was the main attraction of Pisa as it contains precious frescos 13 th century decorations all walls. They are really spectacular and we’re restored in 2018! Great find and I’m happy I’ve seen this hidden gem

This was part of our combo ticket for the Field of Miracles. It was worth it. Wonderful frescos inside, that are still being restored from WW II damage. This is a cemetery building, but also full of art. Get this on your combo ticket! It is amazingly quiet after the hustle and bustle of the outside.
