Some say the beautiful walled cemetery of Camposanto was built around a shipload of holy soil brought from Golgotha in the 12th century. The cemetery’s main feature is a vast rectangular Gothic cloister lined by arches. While most of the cemetery’s frescoes were destroyed in World War II, view the two remaining, as well as detailed sketches of the original works of art.

Great architectural monument, white marble, magnificent place to rest for hundreds of very important italian people. This monument fits perfectly with The Dome and The Tower. more »
