Why is the Tower of Pisa leaning?
Pisa Tower got famous because of a mistake. The tower began to lean during construction in the 12th century because it was built on a soft foundation that could not support the weight of the building.
Will the Leaning Tower of Pisa ever fall?
The Tower has been leaning for over 800 years. So far, it has survived earthquakes, storms, and wars.
