When was the Leaning Tower of Pisa Built?
The construction of the Tower of Pisa (or as the locals say, Il Torre di Pisa) began in a small Italian town about 50 miles west of Florence on August 9, 1173. When the Tower was first built, it was supposed to be used as a bell tower. For five years, the Tower stood straight. Then, in 1178, the foundation shifted, causing it to lean.
To ensure the Tower kept its slant, 800 tons of lead counterweights were added to the base as a start. Because of efforts like this, the Tower is completely still. Since the structure last shifted in 2008, it has not moved so much as an inch, creating a secure building that is unlike anything else on the planet. People are even able to climb inside of it, engaging thrill seekers and frightening pessimists all the same.[caption id="attachment_9731" align="aligncenter" width="214"] Leaning tower of Pisa, Italy[/caption]
