The Leaning Tower of Pisa is the most distinguished landmark in this part of Italy. A freestanding bell tower, it is located behind the Cathedral. Next to the Cathedral and the Baptistry, this is the third oldest structure nestled in the Cathedral Square of Pisa, the Piazza del Duomo.
Many people wonder why the structure tilted. Actually, this started during the time when it was being constructed. The ground was too soft on one side and there was inadequate foundation to support the weight of the building. Even before the construction was finished, the building tilted even more. It was finally stabilized in the early 21st century.
