While no one knows exactly when the tiny underground Tunisian village of Matmata was formed, it found international fame in 1976 when its Hotel Sidi Driss was chosen as a filming location for Star Wars. (In the film, the hotel appeared as Luke Skywalker's childhood home on Tatooine.) Subterranean construction keeps the Berbers who live here cool beneath the extreme desert sun and provides shelters from wind storms.
