Excursion Star Wars Tunisie.


Excvursion Star Wars le Ksar Hadada Star Wars.


The filming of Star Wars films in Tunisia took place in southern Tunisia, in Tataouine, Tozeur and on the island of Djerba.

The main filming sites/locations are:

  • Ksar Ouled Soltane.

  • Ksar Hadada.

  • Ksar Medenine.

  • Matmata and the Sidi Idriss hotel.

  • Chenini for exterior landscape scenes.

Mostly scenes from the slave quarters on Tatooine were filmed here!

Matmata was also used as a natural setting for the Lars farm, where Luke was raised, it is now a hotel that can be visited.

Ksar Médenine, located in the city itself, as well as Ksar Ouled Soltane, were transformed by George Lucas into Tatooine's slave quarters.

Ksar Ouled Soltane is one of the best preserved ksour in the country and still remains relatively untouched by tourism.

Ksar Hadada also served as the setting for the slave quarters in Star Wars.
It was here that significant scenes were filmed, such as Anakin's arrival in the storm and Anakin's departure with Qui-Gon and their farewell to Shmi.

Discover these iconic settings and immerse yourself in the Star Wars universe by visiting Tataouine and the surrounding ksour.
In the surroundings of Tozeur, scenes of Tatooine were also filmed in a life-size set made by the film crew and still standing today.

The visit to this site is included in our 4-day circuit dedicated to Star Wars, as well as in Tataouine and even on the island of Djerba in Ajim and Sidi Jmour, scenes were filmed to recreate the universe of Tatooine.

Tataouine in Tunisia and its surrounding ksour greatly inspired George Lucas for his Star Wars films. The city's very name, Tataouine, was a source of inspiration for the creation of the desert planet Tatooine.

In the Tataouine region, the ksour of Medenine, Ksar Ouled Soltane and Ksar Hadada served as authentic settings for the Star Wars films.
