Located in Pisa, Italy, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is an amazing medieval architecture that was constructed in three stages across 177 years. The ground floor began construction in 1173. Nevertheless, in 1178 the tower began to sink after construction had progressed to the second floor due to unstable soil. Construction was halted to let the soil set before completion.
