- List of Star Wars cities and towns
Ahto City is the only city above water and capital of Manaan.
Aldera was the capital city of Alderaan.
Anchorhead is a settlement located on the planet Tatooine. It is a few kilometers east of the Lars family home, west of the bustling spaceport of Mos Eisley, and primarily consists of moisture farmers. It is also the location of the Tosche Station.
Anchorhead was founded when the Old Republic sought valuable mineral resources on Tatooine's surface. Fort Tusken and Anchorhead were the first Republic settlements on the planet.
Anchorhead serves as the setting for a series of scenes, deleted from Episode IV, that depict the early life and associations of Luke Skywalker. These deleted scenes, which are found in the novel and comic book versions of Star Wars: A New Hope, collectively form the Anchorhead Story of Star Wars. In the LucasArts game Star Wars Galaxies, Anchorhead is described as a town in which those sympathetic to the Rebels can walk out in the open, and noted that "If there was any town on Tatooine that was the farthest from Imperial rule, Anchorhead would be the one."
Anchorhead also appeared in the LucasArts video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, where Anchorhead was the Tatooine landing site for the player's ship, the Ebon Hawk. Anchorhead was depicted as an early mining community and hunting station. It was run by the popular Czerka Corporation and was famous for wraid hunting, swoop racing, and mining. The mining operation, however, was not going too well, since Tatooine did not have any valuable resources and the Sand People often terrorized mining activity, discouraging miners. Those miners, or similar ones, would later leave behind the Sandcrawlers that the Jawas now use.
Arnthout is a city on Tatooine, located some fifteen miles southeast of Bestine.
Barons Hed is a small city where Jerec's dark fortress is located. In the game, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, Kyle Katarn visits the city and infiltrates Jerec's fortress. It is predominantly set in Level 5 of the game. This section is heavily populated. But the final phase of the city - situated in Level 6 - is abandoned.
Bela Vistal is a mountain city on Corellia.
Bestine, the "capital" of Tatooine, is situated far west of Mos Eisley near the south-western Dune Sea. It was also one of the earliest settlements on the planet but never thrived economically, sharing the same problems as many other settlements on the dry world. The Galactic Empire eventually established its base of operations here and placed its regional governor in the city's Main Hall. It is featured prominently in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies (SWG). In a now legendary scene filmed but cut out of Star Wars: Episode IV, Luke Skywalker's best friend Biggs Darklighter tells Luke that he had met someone in Bestine who could hook him up with the Rebellion.
Bornar is a city on Geonosis.
Calamar is the capital city of Esseles.
Calius saj Leeloo

Imperial City was the official name of the planet-wide city of Coruscant during the Galactic Empire. The Imperial Palace, the massive fortress that served as the headquarters of the Emperor himself, was in the heart of the city. The Jedi Temple and the Imperial Senate building were also located in the city, even during the reign of the Emperor. Before and after the reign of the Empire, the city was known as Galactic City.
Iziz is a city with large walls built to keep dangerous beasts from attacking the native Onderonians. After some time, a Sith Lord named Freedon Nadd arrived, bringing the dark side to Onderon. He successfully proclaimed himself king, and his rule was so firm that hundreds of years later, all the ruling families of Onderon would be descended from him.
Iziz used to throw out criminals into the wild to be destroyed by the beasts as a judicial punishment; but over time the criminals learned to control and tame the beasts. They would even form a rival city called "Modon Kira" (under, and named after, the beast lord Modon Kira). From this city, they waged war on Iziz and the ruling family, in a prolonged series of conflicts known as the Beast Wars. Eventually, Jedi Knights were dispatched to mediate a settlement, but they, under Ulic Qel-Droma, ended up deposing the ruling couple, Queen Amanoa and Ommin.
Five years after the Jedi Civil War, Iziz was thrown into an internal civil war of its own when a power struggle within the Onderonian royal family erupted. The planet and city were split between Queen Talia and her cousin General Vaklu when the uprising began. The victor enlisted the help of the Jedi Exile and his followers. In the canonical Light side ending, the Exile intervened on behalf of the Queen, eliminating Vaklu's traitors.
Iziz appeared in Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords.

Down the hill that the city sits upon there lies the planet's spaceport. The spaceport is owned by the government and is costly to land in. Heroes Han Solo and Lando play an intense game of sabacc with Fynn Torve before meeting with Talon Karrde. Their reasoning was to find out where Luke Skywalker was being held.

Moenia is a town on Naboo.
A large spaceport on Tatooine, Mos Eisley is located roughly 50 miles north from Anchorhead, and located near the Desert Palace of Jabba the Hutt. Obi-Wan Kenobi described it as a "wretched hive of scum and villainy." It is the home of the Mos Eisley Cantina (also known as Chalmun's Cantina), the Jango Fett sports arena, and the Imperial Garrison Base. Mos Eisley is the meeting spot for Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan, and Han Solo with his partner Chewbacca in A New Hope.
Mos Entha is a city on Tatooine.
Mos Espa is a city on Tatooine, that is very similar to Mos Eisley, known for its distinct "desert-proof" domed buildings. It is home to a podracing track where the infamous Boonta Eve Classic takes place. It was also the home of Anakin and Shmi Skywalker in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. There was a large slave quarter within the rugged city. The ancient monument of Ksar Hadada in southern Tunisia was used as the location for the exterior shots.
Mos Taike is a city on Tatooine.
Naatan is a city on Saleucami.
Otoh Gunga is an underwater Gungan city on Naboo. Like all the other Gungan cities, it is made up of bubbles that keep air in but keep water out. However, pushing through the bubbles will grant one access to its interior. The city is made up of many of these bubbles. It is visited by Jedi Masters Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. They were the first outsiders to visit the city in Gungan history.
The city's Gungan inhabitants played a large role in the pre-Clone Wars conflict known as the Battle of Naboo. Relatively at peace and neutral, during the Clone Wars Otoh Gunga was attacked by Imperial Forces and partly destroyed. The Gungans surrendered, and made a puppet state of the new Empire, but appointing mainly human officials. With a new social ladder in place, the Gungans were soon driven to poverty and many left the city to the surface.
Otoh Sancture was the town led by the Gungan Boss Gallo. Otoh Sancture was destroyed by Bursas, but Gallo was away gathering animals for a feast. Gallo recruited some Gungans to rebuild Otoh Sancture and drive the Bursas out.
Otoh Sancture appeared in the game Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds and its sequel.
Refuge City is a city on the planet Naboo.
Ren'bl Ettes is the city on Almania that hosts the famous Great Dome of the Je'har. The building it sits upon is so large the dome is almost visible on radar from space. The city itself is full of ancient artifacts and holds a mysterious culture as well beneath its walls. The city is not surrounded by much except valleys and hills.
Rian is the capital of Frego, featured in the novel The Only Witness. It was run by the Cobral family for many years, until a government took its place.
Senta is the capital city of Belasco. Built out of native rose-colored stone centuries before, the city sits on top of golden hills which overlook the Great Sea of Belasco. The old royal grounds are located in Senta, and its lawns and gardens are open to the public.
Sim-First is the capital city of the Simpla colony worlds, primarily Simpla-12.
Taris is the capital city of the planet of the same name. It features three city levels; upper, lower, and under. Bendak Starkiller made this city his exiled home. Beautiful city that suffered a terrible fate just before the Jedi Civil War.
Thani is the capital city of Telos (Telos IV).
Theed is the capital city of Naboo, from which the Monarch of Naboo reigns.
Tibannopolis is the second largest city on Bespin. Much like the better known Cloud City, it is a Tibanna gas mining facility that exists as a floating city in the clouds.
Tibannopolis is an older city than Cloud City, and was far less successful. It lacked the extensive storm warning systems that kept Cloud City safe, and what little systems it did have were scrapped or salvaged fairly early in the city's life. By the time of the Battle of Yavin it had been largely abandoned, leaving a population of a handful of hermits, transients, smugglers, and freelance Tibanna gas miners. By this time, most of the city had been scavenged by visitors and inhabitants, leaving a skeletal framework with many twisted support girders and cut or damaged bulkheads. The entire city appeared to be structurally unsound, and visitors would have serious doubts about the safety of landing their ships on the rickety landing platforms.
Due to lack of maintenance, by 11 ABY, one of the four repulsorlift generators for the city had failed, and at that time it was estimated that the entire city would fall into the depths of Bespin from complete repulsorlift failure by 16 ABY. It is not clear if this failure happened and if the city survived beyond this point.

Tondatha was the home city to Keyan Farlander on Agamar before the Imperials attacked to show their power to any form of resistance. Farlander ran through the Binka Forest's to get to safety in the Calna Muun spaceport which happens to be the planets capital city. There he stayed until approached by Mon Mothma which launched his career.
Tyrena is a riverside city on Corellia that lies near the Golden Beaches, a popular tourist destination. It has been said that Han Solo and Princess Leia considered this location for their honeymoon. Also, Obi-Wan Kenobi may have had a secret love affair with a Twilek named Beehatch.
Ussa is the capital of Bellassa. The city is arranged in concentric circles surrounding seven beautiful lakes. Buildings are kept low, so as to preserve the beauty of the natural environment. Also if you read the story Star Wars The Last Of The Jedi The Desperate Mission the story takes place here.
Utapau is the site of one of the last battles of the Clone Wars. It has a very porous surface with cities built into the deep crevaces. There are ship like structures on the surface and a deep hole in the center makes it possible to reach one layer to the other and reach the city from the surface.
Vetra is a smugglers hideout built on Kothis.
Wayfar is a settlement on Tatooine.
Yetta Bin is a small mining colony on the planet Csilla, mostly known for the mining of rare lightsaber crystals. Little is known about this outer rim planet. Legend has it that Han Solo had a mistress and forbade her to leave the planet. She had two bastard sons whose whereabouts are unknown.
Zehava is the capital of the planet Melida/Daan. During the planet's civil war, the city was divided into Melida and Daan sections, much like Berlin in the Cold War. Its barriers feature durasteel walls and several guard outposts with numerous blaster turrets and other defenses.
The city suffered from over twenty-five battles, which turned it from a sprawling, yet elegant metropolis into a slum. The Melida and Daan dug a series of tunnels during the battles, which were inhabited by a youth pacifist group known as the Young. Moreover, the city itself features numerous Halls of Evidence, or tombs, for dead soldiers.
Once Obi-Wan Kenobi and the Young reunited the Melida and Daan factions, the city of Zehava began rebuilding. Its current status has not been explored by any published sources.
