The Tower of Pisa began to be built at the end of the 12th century to accompany with its huge bell tower at the Cathedral of that city, although not long after it would be completed. Its height reaches exceed 55 meters and has eight floors of which the first has no windows. The outer surface of the tower is disassembles by columns and arches that are becoming fewer as you go up in level. The upper part of the tower is where are the seven different campaigns (each one with a name) and your internal staircase, with about 300 steps, is a beautiful spiral.
The Tower of Pisa is characterized by being sloped but without losing his balance. This defect had to do with the incorrect execution of the plans of the work and its inclination towards the Southeast was almost immediate, that it was intensified (obviously, infinitesimally) with the passing of the years. In addition, the poor ground on which has been built this wonderful Tower always was light and very little firm for buildings of these sizes.
Today, the Tower of Pisa is one of the most visited and popular by tourists European buildings. This has to do with the particularity that presents this tower and which cannot be found in any part of the planet.
