Restoration of historic Greek cathedral

"A Greek Orthodox cathedral that has been the center of the Greek community of Alexandria, Egypt, for 150 years will reopen its doors on April 2 after major restoration works, the foundation created by legendary Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis said Wednesday. Consecrated in 1856, the Church of the Annunciation underwent a two-year restoration process starting in 2002 that cost $600,000."
