This is the reincarnated "Bibliotheca Alexandrina" (inaugurated in 2003), which is located on the corniche of the Eastern Harbor near Alexandria’s downtown. It faces the Mediterranean Sea, and is very close to the location of the Ancient Library (the largest library in the ancient world) in the Brucheion (the Ancient Royal Quarter) of Hellenistic Alexandria.
