interior of tower of pisa

This delay was caused by continuous series of wars. Made of white marble, the tower was designed as a circular bell tower, featuring 8 storeys that includes the bell chamber. The tower’s construction was halted for nearly a century because Pisa was involved in wars with Lucca, Florence and Genoa. It is a good thing that this happened because it gave more time for the subsoil to settle below otherwise would have definitely collapsed.
