Fodor's Review

According to legend, the cemetery—a walled structure on the western side of the Campo dei Miracoli—is filled with earth that returning Crusaders brought back from the Holy Land. Contained within are numerous frescoes, notably The Drunkenness of Noah, by Renaissance artist Benozzo Gozzoli (1422–97), presently under restoration; and the disturbing Triumph of Death (14th century; artist uncertain), whose subject matter shows what was on people's minds

in a century that saw the ravages of the Black Death.
