The Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy

The tower started seen to lean at the time of its creation because the base was built on spongy land that had trouble in supporting the load. The bend became bad as development persisted for some decades. Between 1990 and 2001 it was alleviated and the tilt was partly fixed. The Leaning Tower of Pisa is Torre pendente di Pisa in Italian language. It was constructed as a freestanding tower for the church in Pisa. The part where the tower is lesser because of the tilt it stands at 187.27 feet. On the tall side of the tower it stands at 186 feet.
