This is when a pair of urban explorers visited a crooked church leaning at a 17 degree angle in a deserted Greek village.
Residents were forced to flee the once picturesque village of Ropoto in central Greece in 2012 after a landslide caused many houses to fall and the mountain to crack.
Viral footage shows adventurers Bob Thissen and Frederik Sempels visiting the village church, which suffered little cosmetic damage.
However, the building itself moved over 200 meters as a result of the landslide, causing it to tilt 17 degrees to the left.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy has an inclination of just 3.97 degrees in comparison.
The hilarious clips show Bob and Frederik exploring the building despite feeling “nauseous” and adjusting their position to move up and down the tilted structure.

Once inside, the couple proclaim that the church is more inclined than the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
At one point, Bob and Frederik go up the stairs of the church, which makes the filmmakers sick.

In 2012, the once bustling Ropoto was transformed into a ghost town when houses and buildings started rolling down the mountain.
More than 300 families have been forced from their homes and the fate of the village has been left in the hands of nature.
Fragile foundations and steep slopes have been blamed for the disaster, which was initially initiated by the village unable to push rainwater to the surrounding stream.
The disaster that hit Ropoto, which is in north-central Greece, was unprecedented
