Leaning tower

A leaning tower is a tower which, due to errors in design or construction or to subsequent external influence, does not stand at right angle to the ground. The most famous of these is the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Others can be found elsewhere in Pisa itself, in Bologna, throughout Italy, and in China.

An inclined tower is a tower that was intentionally built at an incline. The world's tallest inclined tower is the tower of the Stade Olympique in Montreal.
