Take a look at the pcture... and then notice how the Bell Toer is leaning... it's not the fault of my poor photographic skills, it really leans... however i had to wait to come back home and develop the photos to discoer this detail. I have now learned that this tower, which is 31 metres tall, started to lean fter an impressive earthquake that destroyed part of dubrovnik in 1667. For the record the tower was built in 1444.

Directions: in the old town, opposite the tiny harbour/marina

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
