Meknes is an ancient city located in Northern Morocco, close to the Middle Atlas Mountains. It is the capital of the Meknes-Tafilalet region and has around 650,000 habitants. Meknes has a rich history, being one of the four ancient “Imperial cities of Morocco” and the capital city of the kingdom during the 17th century. Meknes was declared Unesco's World Heritage city in 1996.

The city has good connections by plane (the Fes-Saiss international airport is 75 km from Meknes) and by train (4.5 hours from the Casablanca Mohamed V international airport; 2-2:25 hours from Rabat station).
