Kairouan (Arabic  القيروان‎ Al Qairawān) is a city in Tunisia, located about 50 miles from the
country's east coast and about 115 miles from Tunis. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and
an important centre for Islamic and Quranic learning, after Mecca and Medina. The holy
Mosque of Uqba is situated in the city.  The French occupied Tunisia - and thus Kairouan - in
1881, and it was only after this date that non-Muslims were permitted in the city. Today it is the
capital of the Kairouan Governorate, and is also the Islamic Cultural Capital.
