Bounded on one side by an enormous Palmerian and with the desolate snow-white expanse of salt on the other, the town feels at once far-flung and urban and lively. Star Wars fans have plenty to be excited about as the Tunisian town of Tatooine is located just a few hours away from the property. This is the untouched landscape that famously inspired George Lucas to choose the town as a filming location for exterior scenes of the desert planet, from where the famed planet took its name, in the first and second Star Wars movie trilogies.
