This second photo post of Pisa is exclusively about my favorite monument of the Piazza dei Miracoli: the Camposanto. In my opinion, it is the most unexpected and unique structure of all these beautiful and historic monuments. The sculptures in the Camposanto are so lifelike, from the folds of the clothes to the beautiful expressions on the faces and the frescoes just took my breath away – they were very possibly my favorite part of the Camposanto.
But enough words (for this time), I’ll just let the photos do the talking…
I recently had the wonderful joy of travelling to Italy with my husband, where we enjoyed the beautiful Mediterranean Sea, the lovely language, the delicious gelato (very, very delicious!), and the amazing culture. Of course my camera was with me as much as possible, although I unfortunately did not remember to take any pictures of the gelato…I was too busy enjoying it to even think of taking a picture!
There will probably be a few photography posts about Italy, as I took a lot of pictures and everything is so beautiful that I want to share it! This post is my first of probably several about Pisa; I’ll share some photos of the Piazza dei Miracoli, where stands the famed tower of Pisa. Still leaning. But the tower is not the only historic and impressive landmark in this piazza; it is but part of the beauty. Standing beside the tower is the imposing cathedral, the baptistry (with beautiful acoustics), and the Camposanto (by far my favorite of all the monuments!). I promise that future posts will have close ups of certain sections, paintings, statues and architecture because the detail and craftsmanship is awe-inspiring.
Today’s post will just be a few general views of the square, but I hope you enjoy it and the ones to come!
