This is one of the buildings on the Piazza dei Miracoli around the cathedral and Leaning Tower of Pizza. It is a cemetery. The graves are in the floor of the building and there are several Roman sarcophagi. There are graves going back hundreds of years and some we saw were as recent as the 1990s. There may be more...

The camposanto is both interesting to walk around and it provides a quiet haven from the bedlam of the Piazza dei Miracoli. On a hot day you can also sit in the shade and cool off a bit.

This cemetery was destroyed by fire during WW2, and one of the "Monuments men" has been allowed to be buried here. When I visited , the place was closed for renovations, and no amount of begging cold get me past the security officer. I suspect it is the least visited building on the site, but it is as interesting in... More

Peaceful Cemetry was completed in 15th century. The burial ground takes the form of cloisters with quatrefoil windows and is something really special.

Old graves and tombstones aren't everyone's cup of tea so it's very peaceful here. Bit different too.

While a lot of people are busy what kind of pose they have to do with Leaning Tower just watch them and enjoy it because I know you will do the same later when you saw first the inside greatness and how it wonderfully made and presented. Enjoy it folks>

In the Field of Miracles, along with the Baptistry and the Tower. Buy tickets at the Museum. Ancient tombs and monuments, as well as some from the 1800s. A must-see

The area around the Tower of Pisa is awash with so many people and walking into this cloistered cemetery was a blessed relief away from the crowds. We found it to be so interesting but did leave us with many unanswered questions, but the sense of peace and the chance for quiet reflection made it a memorable visit for us,... More

This monument was founded in 1277 to accommodate the graves that until then were scattered all around the Cathedral and it was only completed in 1464. In addition the old sarcophagi there are also more recent floor tombstones. The outer walls of the Camposanto are composed of 43 blind arches with two doorways. The right entrance is crowned by a...
