leaning tower of pisa

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is said to be also as Torre pendente di Pisa or it is simply called as La Torre di Pisa. It is said to be as the campanile or the bell tower of the cathedral of the Italian city of Pisa. Its situation lies behind the Cathedral and also said to be as the third structure in Pisa's Campo dei Miracoli which also known as the field of Miracles. The tower is famous for its noticeable lean. It was intended to stand vertically so as to serve as a bell tower, but began leaning soon after construction started in 1173 due to a poorly laid foundation.
