The outskirts of Matmata, a small town tucked up in bare hilly country, are pockmarked with the circular courtyards of subterranean houses.

In one of the houses once lived a local boy made good: Luke Skywalker.

The house where the Star Wars hero's journey began is now a hotel and tourist attraction. But recently it has been found almost deserted. (CSM)
