– There are 22 battlements on top of the Tour Magdala
– The lone window in,  Tour Magdala, which is pointed to by an anomalous floor tile at the base of the Tour Magdala, in turn points unambiguously at a grotto approximately a mile in the distance, which is named ‘The Burial Site of Mary Magdalene’ (remember, her feast day is 22) and is offset from the grotto by 22 degrees (south of west)
