View of the Leaning Tower of Pisa in portrait orientation. Taken from West of the Tower. The seven storeys of Romanesque arcading are surmounted by a smaller circular storey withe larger arched windows. A thin railing edges the top two levels. Part of the end of the cathedral (the roof surmounted by a cross) is seen on the left of the image, a domestic house with window and roof to the right, hills beyond.
