    • It's because of differential settling of the soil the tower was built on. The soil under one side got squished by the weight while the soil on the other side didn't. The structure of the tower is perfectly straight

    • Fun fact: the foundation sank which caused the tilt. The builder tried to make it look "straighter" by changing the height of the walls on the top to make the roof flat
