Several locations throughout Tunisia were used in the first six "Star Wars" movies except "Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back." These locations helped depict Tatooine, the fictional home planet of Luke Skywalker.
And guess what? You can go visit them (someday). Perhaps one of the most unique spots is the Hotel Sidi Driss, located in the Tunisian desert in the village of Matamata. A traditional troglodyte cave dwelling, the hotel was used as Luke Skywalker's childhood home in "Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope" in many scenes of Luke growing up with his aunt Beru and uncle Lars.
Let's take a look at the hotel and some of the other Star Wars Tunisia locations featured throughout the popular films.
