In the middle of the Sahara desert near Tunisia's Chott el Gharsa salt flat is a ghost town best recognized as Mos Espa, a spaceport in the "Star Wars" world of Tatooine. Scenes from "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace" were filmed in the desert town of dome-roofed adobe buildings. Mos Espa is the home of Anakin Skywalker and is known for the podraces in its Grand Arena.
