Inspired from the legends about Castel del Monte
in Puglia, Italy
and from the the mathematics and the astronomy behind.
To construct the shape of the outer and inner wall:
Draw 4 rectangles according to the golden ratio.
The shorter side is multiplied by 1.618 and you have the
length of the longer side.
Arrange the rectangles crosswise rotating each 45 degrees.
The walls are the two octagons.
In 1996 Castel del Monte was included into the world heritage protected
