Leaning Tower of Pisa

The most-famous leaning tower in the world is one of the must-visit places in Europe. It has a four-degree tilt, but people find it as if the tower is about to fall. The leaning tower of Pisa was built in the Romanesque style and is located behind Pisa Cathedral. It took 199 years to complete, back in the 12th century. The worth-mentioning thing is that the tower began to slant during its construction due to soft ground on one side. Still, the tower stands 55.86 meters tall. Tourists visit the tower from far and wide who want to catch sight of the tower and snap pictures of themselves in front of it
