“Torre pendente di Pisa” as it is called in Italian is one of the most remarkable architectural structures of medieval European engineering. It is located in the Italian town of Pisa, one of the most visited European cities. In 2009 I had a privilege visiting this marvellous cathedral complex called Campo dei Miracoli or Piazza dei Miracoli, which means Field of Miracles.

It is hard to impress people of the new Millennium, but I gaped in astonishment with a very good reason. Just imagine how impressive was this daring structure for the people of the XIV century. Proudly standing marble masterpiece was telling me a story centuries old and now I’ve decided to share it with you through an infographic.

I collected the most interesting Leaning tower of Pisa facts which I’m sure, you will enjoy.
