Alexander the Great built the city of Alexandria in 332 BC and gave it its name. It is unlike any other Egyptian city as it has a long and rich history that bears witness to some of Egypt's splendor. Indeed, many important events and stories took place in this city as part of the history of Egypt.

In the wonderful and beautiful Siwa Oasis, Alexander the great chose to visit the Temple of the Oracle of god Amun, who was considered the most important and significant of the gods of ancient Egypt. He approached the village of Racotis and determined that this would be the place for the construction of a great city. He had it built by one of his architects. Alexander then went to Siwa to consult the oracle about his fate, after which he left Egypt to fight the Persians in Asia.
