The construction of the Tower of Pisa began in the 12th century and was completed at the end of 14th century. In 1987, The Leaning Tower of Pisa was declared as UNESCO World Heritage Site including cathedral, cemetery and the baptistery.
Due to the collapse of Civic Tower of Pisa in 1989, restoration work was sped for the Leaning Tower of Pisa and it was decided to build the leaning Pisa Tower more strong and stable. It was done by complete removing of dirt from the ground and replace it with cement or mortar. The Tower of Pisa leaned as much as 5.5 degrees when the restoration work started in 1990.
During the restoration, the tower was closed to the public from 1989 until 2001. After restoration, it is thought that the restoration will keep the Leaning Tower of Pisa stable for the next 300 years. It was then open to public again in the year 2001.
