Leaning Tower of Pisa, cathedral bell tower in Pisa, Italy

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is a freestanding bell tower known for its unintended tilt.

Construction of the tower began in 1173 and took nearly 200 years to complete due to wars.

It's considered one of the four masterpieces of medieval Pisa Cathedral complex.

Visitors can climb up the stairs of the tower for a view of the city.

The tower's tilt began during construction, caused by an inadequate foundation on ground too soft.
