La Piazza del duomo (Cathedral Square) consists of the Cathedral (duomo) at the center, the Baptistery opposite the Cathedral front entrance and the world famous leaning tower of Pisa at the back. The medieval Cathedral was started in 1064 by the architect Buschetto and designed in an Romanesque architectural style while the Baptistery was started later in 1153. The leaning tower was started in 1173 and took 177 years to complete in three stages due to the notorious sinking foundation problems.
