Leaning Tower of Pisa

The Leaning Tower of Pisa (“Torre pendente di Pisa” in Italian) was constructed over 177 years. Construction started on it started in 1173 AD. Due to a poorly laid foundation the structure leans to the South West. The structure is actually a free-standing bell-tower for a cathedral in the city of Pisa in Italy. In 1987, the tower was declared as part of the Piazza del Duomo UNESCO World Heritage Site along with the neighboring cathedral, baptistery and cemetery. This photo of the Tower of Pisa has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo in the Photography category on Running Wolf’s Rant for today.
