Leaning Tower of Pisa

Leaning Tower of Pisa

secret grafic

For over eight hundred years the Tower of Pisa has stood, leaning over the Piazza del Duomo. In case you were wondering, it's 56.70 m at it's highest point - that includes the lean.

I've noted before, here, that Pisa is Galileo's birthplace but I felt that it was worth mentioning again.

The alternate image is a shot of the base of the tower which, I believe, gives a greater sense of just how much the tower does lean. Well worth hovering over the little "+" sign to see.
