The Campanile (Bell Tower) of the Duomo (Cathedral) in Pisa also goes by the name of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Construction on the tower began in 1173. The bell tower began to lean five years after construction began because of weak subsoil and poor foundation. The lean has been stabilized at 4 degrees. The tower is 55.9 m (183.3 ft) high.
