about Kenitra

Want to discover Kenitra? There are a thousand ways to do it. Being the economic capital of the western region, Kénitra is considered today as one of the main Moroccan cities and often cited as the agricultural capital of Morocco. The history of this city goes back to the Phoenician era, the era of construction, back when it welcomed the Romans and was then called Thamusida, and at the time, there was a maritime counter and a river port on the Sebou (current river that crosses Kenitra). Kénitra is a town in northeastern Morocco, formerly called Port-Lyautey under the French protectorate, located at about 40 kilometers north of Rabat, the administrative capital. The city cranks as the fourth industrial city of the Kingdom with a population of 431 282 inhabitants.
