1. Chebica

Chebika (الشبيكة) is a mountain oasis in western Tunisia, in Tozeur Governorate.

Chebika lies at the foot of the mountains of the Djebel el Negueb and, because of its exposure to the sun, it is known as Qasr el-Shams ("Castle of the Sun" in Arabic).In antiquity, it was once a Roman outpost, named Ad Speculum and later a mountain refuge of the Berber people.

The contemporary village of Chebika comprises several hundred people, build near the old one, abandoned in 1969 after catastrophic inundations.

Many scenes of the movie Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and The English Patient were shot in this area.
