May the force be with you !

Ksar Ouled Soltane

This fortified Berber village was transformed by Georges Lucas into a district Tatooine slaves. This ksar is one of the best preserved in the country and is still not very touristy.

 

Ksar Hadada

This ksar also served as a setting for the slave quarters, this is where the scene was filmed where Qui-Gon Jinn contacts Obi-Wan Kenobi in order to ask him to analyze the rate of midichlorians in the blood taken from Anakin, as well as the scene where Shmi talks about her sonadmitting that he has noof father.

 

Matmata: Uncle Owen's house.

Matmata is a village renowned for its troglodyte dwellings.

They are extremely rudimentary dwellings and at the same time particularly magnificent. It can be underground habitats or dug into the mountain side. This type of construction itself the rock allows you to live in a cool space despite the outside heat. 

 

Matmata,  I'Hotel Sidi Driss served as sets for Uncle Owen's house in 1976 and 2000. the hotel, Sidi Driss welcomes fans for a simple visit 

The hotel is divided into 5 courtyards, the fifth bearing the evocative namefrom “Star Wars yard”: this is where the dining room was filmed on Lars farm and the main courtyard of the House.

The painted ceiling of the roomdining room was restored for the filming of episode II (14 years afterthe filming of episode IV!) and is still in perfect condition: It really feels like being in the movie!

Sidi Bouhlel canyon - Star Wars Tunisie.
Excursion Star Wars Tunisie.

Sidi Bouhlel

the magnificent canyon of Sidi Bouhlel, which served as the setting for several cult scenes.

This is where Luke Skywalker and C3PO find R2D2 before being attacked by the Tuskens. The cliffs of this canyon were also the shooting location of the Tuskens during the pod race in Episode I.

 

Besides its connection to Star Wars, the natural landscape of Sidi Bouhlel is breathtaking.

 

Chott el-Gharsa

Chott el-Gharsa, close to Tozeur and Nefta, the entire district of Mos Espa, village of Tatooine where Anakin works in Episode I.

You can stroll the streets of Mos Espa with Qui-Gon Jinn, Padme and Jar Jar Binks, and even see Jar Jar Binks succumb to the culinary temptations of the market.
