Kalâat el-Andalous means "citadel of the Andalusians"; this refers to the seventeenth century when Moors who had been driven out of al-Andalus settled in the fertile Medjerda River valley.
The dominant activity in the region is agriculture, which benefits from its proximity to the Medjerda River, the longest in Tunisia.
The city is split with a village coast which hosts a port of fishing. The proximity of the city Tunis constitutes a northern boundary and the beauty of a coastal strip of sand make it one of the future tourist areas of the capital.[1]
