I'm looking for what it is, where it is *and* its claim to fame.

I have no idea what or where it is (and don't have the time right now to look, darn it!), but it looks like a miniature. It could just be the way it was photographed that makes it look that way.

Now that you mention it Barbara, it does look like a miniature. The thing above the second opening from the left looks like a bolt.

Matmata, Tunisia?
Scenery for some Star Wars and Indiana Jones Movies?

You have Tunisia. You have the correct movie. It's not a miniature, and it has a specific name for the location.

Close enough. It's Hotel Sidi Driss, Tunisia. Star Wars, Episode IV, A New Hope. It was the home of Lars and Beru Skywalker. You can still stay there to this day.

Your turn Cara.

That's the Rasin Building in Prague, CZ, I believe. It's also called Fred and Ginger.

If I'm right, you'll have to post another one, Cara. I'm headed to Disneyworld in 45 minutes, and I won't be back until next Saturday night.
