  • It seems that the tower was built in the middle ages. Rome City, in such buildings will come across before!

  • Also known as Nero's Tower or the leaning tower is an imposing Tower dating from the 13th century, located behind the Trajan's market. It is the largest preserved noble Tower in the city (approximately 50 meters) and impresses with its slope

  • No doubt you can argue that it is the most remarkable example of medieval architecture and the genre exists in Rome. It was part of an area greatly fortified with military garrisons and from this condition derives its name. Built by the counts in the early 13th century, was much sought after as a strategic location from various Roman families (Counts as mentioned, Prefetti di Vico, Caetani, Orsini and Annibaldi) who compete for possession since they aimed at control of the area and in traffic. The tower is the result of a number of pre-existing Roman structures, building phases starting from a neighboring building with an arcade, the castle of the militias of the Caetani (a corner which was occupied by a much higher Tower of the present). The building was constructed initially in "tufelli" and then covered with a clay building blocks. It is a square plan and was composed of three bodies overlapped with development at Spyglass and crenellation (restoration takes apart). The actual height is just over 51 meters because an earthquake in 1348 caused the collapse of the third floor and land subsidence, triggering strong inclination still visible, despite a work of consolidation occurred in the last century. Currently the tower is not open to the public, worth a visit even if from the outside to appreciate its imposing bulk: good evaluation (average +++) to remain in the canons.
