Pisa is one of the best-known cities in Italy because it has the most famous tower in the world. The leaning tower is the main attraction in the city, this tower was declared a World Heritage in 1987 and yet, near this tower you can find others beautiful buildings such as the Piazza del Duomo, the Baptistery, the Campo dei Miracoli, the Camposanto, etc. The construction of the tower started in 1173 but it was halted for nearly 100 years because it started to lean; this happened because the land where the tower was built was a clay mixture. The architects continued with the project and it was finally completed in 1319 and in 1350 the bell of this amazing tower was installed.
