It has approximately 6350 inhabitants and is part of the Kef Governorate. It is located at 625 meters above sea level, 225 kilometers southwest of Tunis.

Near the village known today as Medeïna, 9 km to the southwest, is the archaeological site of Althiburos an ancient numidian city, and former Roman town hall.[citation needed]
