We're going to visit the Citadel of Qaitbay. It's a big and interesting place. The Citadel of Qaitbay is a 15th-century fortress located on the Mediterranean Sea coast in Alexandria, Egypt. It was built by Sultan Al-Ashraf Sayf al-Din Qa'it Bay. The Citadel is situated on the eastern side of the northern tip of Pharos Island at the mouth of the Eastern Harbour.
The Bibliotheca Alexandria was a really big and important library from ancient times. It was part of a much larger research institution called the Mouseion. The Mouseion was dedicated to the Muses, the nine goddesses of the arts. The idea for a universal library may have come from Demetrius of Phalerum, an exiled Athenian statesman living in Alexandria. However, the Library probably wasn't built until the reign of Ptolemy II Philadelphus. The Library quickly acquired many scrolls because of Ptolemaic kings' aggressive and well-funded policies for acquiring texts. It is still unknown exactly how many scrolls were housed at any given time, but estimates range from 40,000 to 400,000.
