    Un esfuerzo encomiable por recuperar lo que una vez distinguió a Alejandría de las demás ciudades del mundo. Millones de libros descansan en el interior de este inmenso complejo.

    Awe-inspiring architecture and many interesting historical objects throughout. Didn't have an opportunity to use it for its main purpose (study/read), but the building was created to impress.

    Aspiring to the allure of the Ancient Library of Alexandria, this new Library has some big and ambitious shoes to fill. While it will be a true challenge, I must admire the Egyptians for "aiming high"
