Pisa Tower – Once satisfied, take a picture. It is the time to visit some historic buildings in this city. We start the course from the Pisa Tower. Pisa Tower was built on August 9, 1173 as he entered the stage of the third floor, the position of the tower already looks to be tilted.
Some claimed it is constructed on soft ground so that the foundation of the tower moves. But there is also a state error in the construction of development. Until now no one knows for sure. So after the third floor which was completed in 1178 stalled tower construction for 90 years.
Ninety years later, four floors begin to be rebuilt. And since the tower is tilted, then the next development was to follow the slope of the tower, according to history so as not to look crooked. Once again, rebuilding stalled in the year 1301. It was only in the year 1372 completed the construction of the tower and bells were installed.
Pisa Tower, was closed to the public in early 1990. The reason is closed, which sucks because the buildings of foreign tourists is number 1 in Italy, considered starting suffered damage, and the building became increasingly skewed estimated between 4 to 5 meter slope.
After swallowing the cost of up to 28 million euros for the repairs, in mid-December of 2001 before the Pisa Tower reopened to the public. The experts do the hypothesis, there is an opinion building 55.86 meters altitude in the southern and northern parts of 56.70 meters (due to tilt the size was different), can last approximately 300 years longer. But according to scientists, if the Pisa Tower continues to be allowed for visitors to enter it, chances are that historic buildings cannot survive up to 300 years.
Therefore, the next project for the Pisa Tower, is to remove some parts of the building, to be more mild. And from the tower will be visible as a ceropong sky, like before 1935.
Virtually any luck, it was thanks to the slope of the tower that was originally due to a problem, the city of Pisa until now the main destination of foreign tourists in Italy.
