  Abstract We have studied the response of the vortex lattice (VL) in a YBa2Cu3O7-delta sample with oriented twin boundaries (TB's) and in an untwinned sample. In the twinned sample the density of twin boundaries is estimated from decoration experiments. The TB's affect the liquid-to-solid transition in the vortex structure, which is of first order in the twin free crystal and to a Bose glass in the twinned sample. We measure the ac susceptibility, and find that the response strongly depends on the orientation of the probing ac field with respect to the TB's. The ac field produces a tilting stress on the vortices. With the applied de magnetic field H-dc parallel to the c axis, the response of the VL is weaker when the tilt is parallel to the TB's than when it is perpendicular or at 45 degrees to the TB's. The results are explained by the fact that the VL is locked to the twin boundaries for small deviations of H-dc from the c axis and is partially pinned to them for larger angles. By measuring over the whole angular range we estimate the angles over which each regime is realized for different temperatures. The results of the detwinned sample are used for comparison.
