The Camposanto of Pisa has been called the most beautiful cemetery in the world - t. According to legend, Pisan knights on the Fourth Crusade brought back a cargo of soil back to Pisa from the hill of Golgotha, in order that eminent Pisans might be buried in holy earth.

 

The Camposanto is one of the four major buildings (Leaning Tower, Duomo and Baptistry) at the World Heritage listed Campo dei Miracoli.
