PISA-LEANING TOWER OF PISA-PIAZZA DEI MIRACORI-TUSCANY-ITALY

The leaning tower of Pisa is a campanile ( free standing bell tower) located in Piazza del Duomo also known as Piazza dei Miracori - the cathedral square.

Together with the Cathedral and Baptistery they form a cathedral complex which was was funded in XI-th century. This arrangement of group of sacral buildings was very typical for the Romanesque architecture of Italy, but only here the ingenious design and artistry of the workmanship achieved a great lightness and delicacy of  early medieval structures - despite the fact some of them crooked.

The square is surrounded by also medieval wall.
.....and yes we did this funny posture ( supporting the tower) posing for the photo but we're not going to publish it ;-)

  1. He estado dos veces en Pisa y las dos veces he disfrutado de las dos piezas que emblema ese espacio de terreno verde en el que resaltan las dos obras. El Baptisterio se puede disfrutar de la acústica y del canto en él.
    Un abrazo.
