Alexandria is a location Lara visits in The Last Revelation

It is a coastal city in Egypt. Alexandria was founded by Alexander the Great, who gave the city its name, and was intended to be the capital of his empire. After his death in 323 BCE, Egypt became part of the Ptolemaic Empire, after one of Alexander's generals. Cleopatra, whose sunken palace Lara discovers in the sea off Alexandria, was the last of the Ptolemies, at which point Egypt was incorporated into the Roman Empire.

Although it has been ruled successively by Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and the Ottomans, Lara sees little of the city itself. The area that Lara arrives in is fairly suburban and, given it's proximity to the Coastal Ruins must be fairly close to the sea.

The Last Revelation

Main article: Alexandria Section

Lara travels via the Desert Railroad to Alexandria to meet Jean Yves again. He tells Lara, that Werner Von Croy has gotten the Amulet of Horus and he's going to search for the Armour of Horus, too. Lara must find the armour before Von Croy does, but it's scattered to pieces that are located at different places.
