Ben's Hermitage

After a FANTASTIC drive along the coastal track, meandering through palm trees, we shortly arrive at Ben Kenobi's Hermitage from Star Wars - A New Hope (as seen in the pre-Special Edition release).

The building used in these exterior shots were replaced in the Special Edition by a digital matte. In the original version of A New Hope, the hut can be briefley seen with Luke's landspeeder parked in front of it.

You can learn more from the guidebook!

It's an abandoned fisherman's shack, with two small rooms, and an alcove - probably a fireplace. As you can see, it bears no resemblance to the interior where Ben passed on Anakin's lightsaber to Luke.

The drive down the coast is amazing. We got to evoke the "Spirito de Punto"!

Back in the car, on to Mos Eisley!
