The Leaning Tower of Pisa is the campanile of the cathedral in Pisa.  The tower was begun in 1173, and took 177 years to build!  It began to lean after only 5 years of work.  The height of the tower is 183 feet from the ground on the low side & 186 feet on the high side.  During World War II, the Allies discovered that the Germans were using the tower as an observation post. A U.S. Army sergeant's decision not to call in an artillery strike kept the tower from being destroyed.
