  At Hotel Sidi Driss, Matmata
by barryg23

The unique troglydyte homes plus a certain movie franchise are what draw so many visitors to Matmata.

Hotel Sidi Dirss was used as the home of Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars movies and used again in the Phantom Menace. Hence, it's not short of visitors. Most visitors to Matmata will get the chance to visit these unique homes - you certainly won't have to wait long for an invite as all visitors are approached, sometime even followed, as locals try to entice you to see their home.
