On the road which will take us to Medenine, we will cross fields of olive trees. First photo stop at the salt lake "Sebkhet el Melah" to see the natural scenery of the film.


We will continue towards Tataouine, the capital of the Berber region, where we will visit the ksar Ouled Soltane, one of the districts

to the slaves of Tatooin. (Episode 1).


Then we will discover the village of Chenini for a guided tour. (Scenes from exterior landscapes of Star Wars).


We will have lunch in a restaurant in Guermassa, before going

see Ksar Hadada, which served as a backdrop for the slave district of Mos Espa. (Episode 1, the Phantom menace).


Finally, on the way back to Zarzis, we will visit

the Ksar Medenine which also served as a natural setting

for George Lucas.


We will not visit Matmata where the scene was filmed there

from the Lars farm, visiting this place during the day is impossible

at the kilometer level, the visit to this place is included in the circuit

over 4 days

We also offer

a 4-day Star Wars circuit

T ataouine and the surrounding ksour strongly inspired George Lucas for his films.

Even the name of the city, Tataouine served as inspiration for the name of the desert planet of Star Wars, the planet Tatooin.


Tataouine was not used as a filming location for the first trilogy

and very little used for the trilogy of the 2000s.

The filming was spread over different places in the south

from Tunisia.


Around Tozeur ( which is the subject of a 4-day circuit ).

Around Tataouine and even on the island of Djerba in Ajim and Sidi Jmour.


The Ksar Medenine and Ksar Ouled Soltane authentic decorations

for Star Wars. The Ksar Medenine is located in the city, and as

the Ksar Hadada, it served as a backdrop for the slave quarters

from Mos Espa.


Two scenes were filmed there: Arrival at Anakin

in the storm and the departure of Anakin with Qui-Gon and his farewells

to Shmi. Ksar Ouled Soltane, this fortified Berber village was transformed by Georges Lucas into the slave quarter of Tatooin.


This ksar is one of the best preserved in the country and still remains

little touristy. Ksar Hadada, this ksar also served as a setting

for the slave district.

This is where the scene where Qui-Gon Jinn contacted Obi-Wan was asked to ask him to analyze the rate of midichloriens in the blood taken from Anakin, as well as the scene where Shmi talks about his son.

admitting that he has no father.
