Béja in a Nutshell

Located in northwestern Tunisia, the Governorate of Beja is located in a central position thus occupying a central axis between the coastline and the west. Bordering five other governorates and a small opening to the sea (a coastline of 26 km), the governorate of Beja is crossed by the most important roads connecting the East to the West and of the country as well as the railway linking Tunis, the capital, to the Algerian border.
