Manica is a market town in western Mozambique, lying west of Chimoio in the province of Manica. Originally the centre of the Kingdom of Manica, it grew around the gold trade but is now best known for the Chinamapere rock paintings. The Penha Longa Mountains lie north of the town.
It is served by a station on the southern line of the national railway system. It is the last major station before the Zimbabwe border.
