Tataouine is a town in southern Tunisia, meaning literally "eyes" in Berber. Its unique architecture and town layout have made it a fascinating location for tourists, brought to even further national attention when George Lucas chose to base the fictional planet of Tatooine on it in his Star Wars films. Tataouine's features include partially underground areas, built long ago by the Berbers to keep cool, adobe buildings, manmade caves, granaries, and ghorfas. Most of the inhabitants are Berber, with a minority of Arab population.
