It is located in the Wadi Miliane valley, surrounded by mountains, in particular the Djebel Zaghouan. The Roman site of Thuburbo Majus is located 3 km away. Under the French protectorate, the city was known as Pont du Fahs, (trans. Bridge-of-Fahs), named after the remains of a Roman era bridge in the vicinity. The town was the site of a World War II battle during the Tunisia Campaign.
