About this spot
The world famous Leaning Tower of Pisa is the 55 metre tall campanile (freestanding bell tower) of the cathedral of the Pisa. Its fame is due to its nearly four-degree lean, the result of an unstable foundation.

The tower began to lean during its construction in the 12th century, due to soft ground which could not properly support the structure's weight. By 1990, the tilt had reached 5.5 degrees. Remedial work between 1993 and 2001, which reduced the tilt to 3.97 degrees and stabilised the structure.
