Pisa Cemetery / Holy FieldPisa's monumental cemetery of the Camposanto is a large, walled structure located to the north of Pisa's Duomo cathedral.

Built in the late-13th century to house shiploads of holy soil, brought back from the mount where Christ was crucified, Pisa's Camposanto (Holy Field Cemetery) is one of the world's most beautiful cemeteries.

During the Second World War, the Holy Field Cemetery was heavily bombed and the wooden roof caught fire, causing the lead panels to melt and damage many of the historic frescoes. When the cemetery's damaged frescoes were removed, workers found the original sketches underneath and these have become major exhibits in the Museo della Sinopie.

Open: April to September - 08:00 to 19:40, March and October - 09:00 to 17:40, November to February - 09:00 to 16:40
Admission: charge
