Cathedral and Tower

Leaning Tower of Pisa, built 1173-1350 in the Romanesque style, next to Pisa Cathedral. Made of gleaming white and pastel marble, the campanile has a diameter of 52 feet (16 m) at the base and would stand 185 feet (56 metres) high if it were straight. It currently leans 5.5 degrees, which amounts to about 15 feet or 4.5 metres from vertical. Pisa, Tuscany, Italy.
