History Sneak Peek
When was the bell tower built?
Pisa’s bell tower is older than it looks. Its construction began in the 12th century and was completed in the mid 13th century.
Why was it Built?
The primary purpose of the leaning tower was to serve as the church's bell tower. However, as the city grew in fame and power, they were looking for a way to show off their importance. As a result, the Pisans decided to build a grand cathedral complex, a true Field of Miracles. The architectural plan comprised a cathedral, baptistery, cemetery and bell tower - The famous Tower of Pisa.
Who Built It?
The identity of the tower’s architect remains a mystery. The names most associated with trying to save the tower in the first phase of its construction are Bonanno Pisano and Gherardo din Gherardo. The success of the second phase is attributed to Giovanni di Simone and Tommaso Pisano.
Why does it Lean?
The lean of the tower is a result of the soft, shifting soil typical for the Pisa area. Because of its very flat foundation on the ground made up of clay, sand, and shells, the tower started leaning before the builders finished the third floor. Don’t worry though; the engineers managed to stabilize it so it should standstill for the next two hundred years.
