The Campo Santo, also known as Camposanto Monumentale (monumental cemetery) or Camposanto Vecchio (old cemetery), is a historical edifice at the northern edge of the Cathedral Square in Pisa, Italy. 'Campo Santo' can be literally translated as 'holy field', because it is said to have been built around a shipload of sacred soil from Golgotha, brought back to Pisa from the Fourth Crusade by the archbishop of Pisa in the 12th century. This view shows some construction taking place on the main dome, to the left, with a number of figures, and a horse drawn cart, on the path in the foreground. After Philipe Benoist (1813-1880), with titles in French and Italian. For coloured impression, see item ref: 33386.
