Crevasse City was a city on the Core World Alderaan that was the first and largest of the canyon cities. It was built into the walls of a massive canyon, which allowed it to conceal everything from dwellings to heavy industry underground. Due to its unusual structure and scenic landscape, it became a popular tourist destination, and thus, had its own hotels and resorts. The city had no spaceport, and as such had to rely on Aldera's facilities.[2]

Crevasse City,[1] along with all of Alderaan, was destroyed by the Galactic Empire's Death Star, a mobile battle station that was capable of destroying entire planets.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Crevasse City was first mentioned in the canon 2018 roleplaying sourcebook, Dawn of Rebellion, published by Fantasy Flight Games.[2] It was first mentioned in Star Wars Legends in the book Young Jedi Knights: Shards of Alderaan, which was released in 1997.[4]
