Construction of the Romanesque Cathedral began in 1063 and work began on the Leaning Tower in 1174, which began to lean almost immediately. Pisa is also known for its famous University, founded in 1343, with over 30,000 students enrolled today. One of the university's most famous scholars was Galileo.
