The beauties of the world’s most fascinating corners are multiplied, as each country will find sites that have all the amenities necessary to force us to schedule a visit. And if our budget allows, Alexandria will be our next trip.
Alexandria the name goes back to a city with a great history behind it, because who founded it was the same Alexander the Great in 332 BC However, despite the incredible amount of years that accumulates and the importance of this city past, many tourists returning from Alexandria are not satisfied, then little is left to see its history. Despite all this, today the main attraction of the city of Alexander the Great is his great library.
The Ancient Library of Alexandria retains the appeal of being the largest in the world , as assembled in one place more than 700 thousand books. It was so overwhelming its capacity as the uncertainty of knowing how the library was destroyed, who was commissioned to do it and why. According to historians, in any of their occupations is believed that the emperor ordered to burn all content. Nevertheless, there have been several theories about that until today there is no basis whatsoever.
However, thousands of years later the government of Egypt, Unesco and a lot of countries projected the construction of the new Bibliotheca Alexandrina, which was investigated for what materials and volumes contained. Similarly, the end result is contradictory because many tourists have been disappointed with their trip to Alexandria because they claimed “the entire history of the city and the ruins that once had have disappeared. Alexandria today is only visible modernity”.
