The Mos Espa set. Photo by Julien on Flickr

This abandoned film set in the Tunisian desert was built in 1997 for the filming of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999). The sandstone facades formed the village of Mos Espa on Tatooine. The set was used again in Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002) and still stands today, open to the public.
