Set outside the city walls beside Piazza dei Miracoli, by the medieval Porta del Leone (Lion Gate), the Jewish Cemetery has been the burial place of Israelites since 1674. Its monuments, in a variety of styles ranging from the classical trapezoid to Empire, Neo-gothic and Liberty are of particular interest, as are the 17th century tombstones, transferred here from the previous burial ground, and for the different places where the people buried here came from.

The origins of the people buried here is a clear indication of how mixed the Jewish population has been over the centuries and is also evidence of how many foreigners chose to be buried in the Pisan cemetery because of its beauty.Reports and public and private documents demonstrate that since the 13th century, there have been at least four Hebrew cemeteries in Pisa.
