The Cairo levels take place exclusively in Islamic Cairo - a mixture of Medieval Byzantine, Arabic and Turkish architecture. The 'City of the Dead' is a real area of Islamic Cairo - a kind of gigantic cemetery where the population live and work among their dead ancestors' mausoleums and tombs. The name of the level also gives the player a nice feeling of dread - where is everyone? You'll soon meet some Egyptian Soldiers, but they'll be less than happy to see Lara, and have to deal with some automatic Sentry Guns that shoot bullets and flames. Lara can have a look round some tombs while she's there - she'll find some Bats and also some ancient magic that will come in very handy.
