The landscape and cultural wealth of Spain is an asset for many audiovisual projections, especially film and television, to be shot entirely in the country or for some scenes or sequences. Spain is a very television and photographic country in which very successful films and series have been shot. Some projections that, many times, usually attract tourists to see the real scenes of the filming . And, although there are many places, here we make a selection of some of them to plan a trip or a getaway.
The Community of Navarra has been one of the settings in which one of the most successful series has been filmed in recent years. It’s about " Game of Thrones ." This fiction was set in the Bárdenas Reales Natural Park to convert it into Mar Dothraki, its image appearing in the first and sixth episodes of the sixth season.
This series was also filmed in more Spanish places such as the Real Alcázar de Sevilla, which was converted into the Jardines del Agua de los Martell, as well as Gerona where the scenes of the King’s Landing and San Juan de Gaztelugatxe were filmed, which became fiction in Dragonstone.
The Canary Islands are one of the scenarios in which more films and television series are shot. Among them, the British series “Black Mirror” stands out for example. A fiction that includes images shot in the town of Tejeda , located on the island of Gran Canaria . Specifically, the shots focused on its old town.
Also in the Canary Islands scenes of " The Witcher " were filmed. The filming took place on La Palma , an island that was the scene of several sequences in which the Cascada de Los Tilos could be seen, which allowed to represent and recreate the Magic Forest of Brokilón, as well as the municipality of El Paso , which was reconverted in the fictional Llano de las Brujas, or the Roque de los Muchachos , among other natural places.
Cantabria is another of the autonomies that are part of those chosen by the world of cinema or television fiction series for natural scenery. In this case, she was chosen for the series " The Zone ", whose plot was based on the investigation of a murder by an investigator in an exclusion zone that had a serious nuclear accident .
From Cantabria, above all, the Cabárceno Natural Park was chosen to film, which concentrates a good part of all the scenes in this fiction, which was almost entirely shot in northern Spain .
And if there is a community that is linked to the world of cinema and audiovisuals, it is Andalusia. And not just because of that setting for western shootings. There are also other places that attract filmmakers and directors and producers of television series.
This is the case of Almería , the province where the series " Vis a Vis " was filmed, which was so successful with its history of the different dams. In this case, the scenarios in this province are related to two beaches in this province.
One of them is Playa del Peñón Blanco , which is located in the town of La isleta del Moro, while the other location is Playa de Rodalquilar , which is characterized by being a virgin beach of 400 meters of golden sand, forming part from the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata.
And, of course, on this tour you cannot miss Barcelona, which has been chosen for fictions such as "Killing Eve". The recordings, above all, focused on El Born, La Barcelonesa and Plaza Lesseps, among other places.
