THE COLLAPSE OF A SYMBOL OF SARAGOZA
The Leaning Tower of Zaragoza was a clock tower built in 1504. Over the years, it an icon and symbol towering over the roofs of the city.
The inclination tower started shortly after the construction. Although the main cause of its destruction was not environmental but human, part of the problem was certainly linked to land subsidence.
The freely available scientific publication proposed below provide detail on the history, mechanisms and effects of this disaster.
