Maekel, or Maakel, or the Central region is one of the six regions of Eritrea. It is the smallest region in area, and contains the major city and national capital, Asmara. The region is inland, and borders Anseba to the north-west, Northern Red Sea region to the north-east, Southern region to the south, and Gash-Barka to the west.
