Other questions about "Tower"

Q: The leaning tower is at a lager inclination to vertical. soa natural?
A: Firstly, "lager" is a spelling mistake, I think you mean "larger" instead.

But then you would not use "larger" unless you were making a comparison.

Also you must put "the vertical", not just "vertical".

So perhaps this is better:

"The leaning tower is at a large inclination to the vertical."
