An Architecture Tour Far, Far Away

After George Lucas shot the scenes for multiple Star Wars movies in the Tunisian desert, he left all the low, white buildings to eventually crumble in the sun. But a recent tourist discovered that desert-dwellers are actually living in the structures, and you can take a Star Wars jeep tour to visit them.

It turns out Tunisia is proud of its Tatooine past, heavily promoting the area to tourists. There’s even a nearby town named Tatouine. If you go, you can stay where both Lucas and Luke once slept–local hotel named Sidi Driss served as the interiors of Skywalker’s home. Sounds good, as long the Cantina Band is still performing nightly in Mos Eisley.

Update
: Lots more photos from Jedi Knights.
