Matmata is a small Berber speaking town. Some of the local Berber residents live in traditional underground "troglodyte" structures. The structures typical for the village are created by digging a large pit in the ground. Around the perimeter of this pit artificial caves are then dug to be used as rooms, with some homes comprising

multiple pits, connected by trench-like passageways. Matmata is a popular tourist attraction, and most of the population lives on tourism and folklore exhibitions in their homes. Suroundings were used as a filming location.
