Open to the Atlantic Ocean, Benslimane spans between two metropoles : Casablanca and Rabat, and abounds with natural and human important potentialities. Due to its rich woods, rocky legacy and beachfront assets, Benslimane embraces at the same time high-scale agricultural and touristic areas. One of its aspirations is to bring to light its academic dedication by concretizing an ambitious project of 100 ha university compound.
Across its history, Benslimane spans over the “Ziaydas” tribe territory which is a branch of the “Chawiyas” confederation. Its importance went higher after the foundation of its weekly market and the settlement of a military camp followed by the construction of a residential district during the French Protectorate. Urbanism in this city took fast steps during late 1970s after the birth of Benslimane Province as an administrative entity, of which it became the chief place and an inevitable destination of green and beachfront tourism.
