"Torre Garisenda" Torre Garisenda Tip by Willettsworld

Torre Garisenda, Bologna: 5 reviews and 8 photos


Torre Garisenda was shortened as a safety measure within only a few years of its construction in 1360. Compared to its taller neighbour, Torre Asinelli, the tower is only 49m (162 ft.) tall, but because the Garisendas didn't prepare a solid foundation, it sways tipsily to the south, about 3m (11 ft.) from perpendicular.
