Campo santo

Along with the Tower of Pisa and the Bapisterio, this is one of the most interesting monuments of the Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa. It is a Byzantine-style rectangular building surrounded by tombs and Medieval and Renaissance-style sculptures, with some frescos saved from the fires of World War II. You can visit for 5€ with a ticket.

Pisa: monumental cemetery or camposanto

The cemetery or monumental cemetery of Pisa is located in the Campo de Miracoli, next to the Cathedral of Pisa. The definition of cemetery comes from the origins of its construction, it thought situated around a sacred land cargo entry of the Holy Land in Jerusalem, the Glgota, and legend has it that the bodies buried here descomponan in 24 hours. The cemetery began to build in the year 1277 by the architect Giovanni di Simone and whose work was completed in 1464, years after his death. Initially, the project was aimed at the construction of a church but eventually desemboc origin in a work a graveyard. Finally we encotramos us with a walled with three chapels and 43 blind arches and two doors building. When deciding to visit the cemetery, my first thought was A basic construction without anything to do, but once you get inside you realize it is not so. Its 600 gravestones, many Greco-Roman, its beautiful frescoes by artists like Benozzo Gozzoli, Taddeo Gaddi, Andrea and Antonio di Buonaiuto Venezian, its 84 sarcophagi from the Roman period exposed to the public or the collection of sculptures and Roman urns and Etruscan make the place corresponds to a small museum more than a cemetery. In 1987, UNESCO declared the cemetery, as well as the whole Piazza dei Miracoli, Universal Heritage.

Pisa: el cementerio o camposanto monumental

El cementerio o camposanto monumental de Pisa se encuentra situado en el Campo de Miracoli, al lado de la Catedral de Pisa. La definición de camposanto proviene de los orígenes de su construcción, que se piensa situada alrededor de un cargamento de tierra sagrada traída de Tierra Santa en Jerusalén, del Gólgota, y la leyenda dice que los cuerpos aquí enterrados se descomponían en 24 horas.

El cementerio se comenzó a construir en el año 1277, obra del arquitecto Giovanni di Simone y cuya obras finalizaron en 1464, años después de su muerte. Inicialmente, el proyecto estaba dirigido a la construcción de una iglesia pero finalmente desembocó en una obra que originó un camposanto. Finalmente nos encotramos con un edificio tapiado con tres capillas y 43 arcos ciegos y dos puertas de acceso.

Cuando decidir visitar el cementerio, mi primera idea era una construcción básica y sin nada que ver, pero una vez que entras te das cuenta que no es así. Sus 600 lápidas, muchas de ellas grecorromanas, sus frescos de gran belleza realizados por artistas como Benozzo Gozzoli, Taddeo Gaddi, Andrea di Buonaiuto y Antonio Venezian, sus 84 sarcófagos de la época romana expuestos al público o la colección de esculturas y urnas romanas y etruscas hacen que el lugar se corresponda más a un pequeño museo que a un camposanto.

En 1987, la UNESCO declaró al Cementerio, así como a toda la Piazza dei Miracoli, Patrimonio Universal de la Humanidad.

Cemitério monumental de pisa

Ao lado da famosa Torre Inclinada de Pisa, o Cemitério Monumental pode passar despercebido, mas isso porque pelo lado de fora é só um paredão branco de mármore, mas por dentro é muito lindo.

Construído com grandes janelas góticas, como se fosse um castelo, o Cemitério que já foi considerado o primeiro Museu a céu aberto da Itália, sempre se preocupou em expor muitas obras, tanto pinturas como esculturas. Além da grande coleção de sarcófagos romanos uma sala abrigas diversas relíquias religiosas.

Dentre os túmulos mais importantes estão o do matemático Fibonacci e dos membros da Família Médici.

Todas as pinturas das paredes estão sendo restauradas, algumas obras já estão expostas no cemitério enquanto outras estão no Museu Sinópie que fica do outro lado do Campo dos Milagres.

A entrada no cemitério é paga, mas você pode comprar ingressos combinado com as outras atrações do Campo dos Milagres (Torre Inclinada, Duomo e o Batistério).

Magnificent frescoes

If you choose to pay one visit Pisa, I urge you Camposanto. This is the cemetery, so if you're there for the Saints, admission is free, but what cemetery! A Gothic-style building with beautiful arches originally covered the walls with large medieval frescoes. In the 19th century, Pisa was already a tourist destination but what travelers came to see what was above all the magnificent frescoes Camposanto. The Leaning Tower had not yet reached its reputation. Damaged during the Second World War, the Camposanto was restored; also the frescoes are several tombs of interest.

Fresques magnifiques

Si vous choisissez une seule visite payante à Pise, je vous conseille vivement le Camposanto.
C'est le cimetière, aussi si vous êtes là pour la Toussaint, l'entrée est gratuite, mais quel cimetière! Un bâtiment de style gothique aux magnifiques arcatures avec les murs originellement couverts de grandes fresques médiévales.
Au 19ème siècle, Pise était déjà une destination touristique mais ce que les voyageurs venaient voir c'étaient avant tout les magnifiques fresques du Camposanto. La Tour penchée n'avait pas encore atteint sa notoriété.
Endommagé pendant la seconde guerre mondiale, le Camposanto a été restauré ; outre les fresques plusieurs tombeaux sont dignes d'intérêt.

Peaceful, away from the crowds

The Campo Santo or monumental cemetery is not far from the Tower of Pisa. It is a very quiet place, we did cross a dozen people compared to tourists who gather in front of the Tower. This place is sacred, many people are buried here, one can see their plates on the floor of the building. Around the Campo Santo is made in arcades and there is a small chapel inside.

Paisible, loin des foules

Le Campo Santo ou cimetière monumental se trouve non loin de la tour de Pise. C'est un lieu très calme, nous n'y avons croisé qu'une dizaine de personnes comparé aux touristes qui s'amassent devant la Tour. Ce lieu est sacré, beaucoup de personnes sont enterrés ici, on peut voir leurs plaques sur le sol du bâtiment. Le tour du Campo Santo est fait en arcades et il y a une petite chapelle à l'intérieur.

Located right next to the baptistery,...

Located right next to the Baptistery, the visit to the cemetery (camposanto) is interesting: You can admire the tombs and sarcophagi from the Roman to the nineteenth century. In a room on the side exposed apocalyptic frescoes of the fourteenth century.

Situé juste à côté du Baptistère ,la visite du cimetière (camposanto) est intéressante : On y admire des tombeaux et sarcophages des romains au XIXème siècle. Dans une salle sur le côté sont exposés des fresques apocalyptiques du quatorzième siècle.
