Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy

Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy
Leaning tower of Pisa, Italy or "Torre pendente di Pisa"--in Italian.
This magnificent Architectural milestone is a must see when you go visit Italia. the fact that it was constructed and rebuild and reconstructed and took over 900 years to complete is already a story to tell. what's fascinating about this tower is that it is 14,500 metric tons and it is leaning over 4 degrees and with its building height--it is slanting 12 feet from the vertical position. perfectly safe right? no wonder there's a sign "no standing" from the toppling side of it. hahaha! :)) --TRUE STORY!
