Egypt - Alexandria - 19-33

Half-view of the curving Alexandria shore.

 

Alexandria, next largest city in Egypt after Cairo, once home to a Seventh Wonder of the ancient world (The Lighthouse), and the eponymous Library, founded in the 3rd century.

 

Not pictured is the new Bibliotheca Alexandrina, completed in 2003 near the site of the original.
