But that does not take anything away from the charming badlands dotted with cacti and dazzling sunlight that creates mirages as it strikes the sand. Within the desert are 14 filming villages, though Fort Bravo, Western Leone, and Oasys are more popular with tourists than the others. Visitors can tour the villages and learn about the films that were shot here such as Lawrence of Arabia and The Last Crusade.
