Filming Locations in Spain
Spain contains a large number of landscapes that would fit in any type of film production. From the famous cityscapes of Madrid and Barcelona to the many gothic buildings and cathedrals to an isolated beach, rolling mountains, and castles outside the city.
Madrid has produced both local and international films. Feature films shot in Madrid include the action-thriller blockbuster “The Bourne Ultimatum” and the historical fantasy “Pan’s Labyrinth”. Many film productions have chosen to bring their production here because this capital city is easily accessible for productions.
The second largest city in Spain, but in terms of the landscape, this city is second to none. An action blockbuster-tier film production like “Uncharted” was once filmed in this city. Also, a romantic-drama comedy film “Vicky Chistina Barcelona” by Woody Allen was filmed here too.
Seville is famous for its old town that is combined with some modern architectural touches. It’s a dream destination for many tourists and filmmakers. This particular location was once used in “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace” as Planet Naboo and also reappeared in “Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.”
Segovia is famous for its historic buildings including three main landmarks. Its midtown Roman aqueduct, its cathedral, and the medieval castle. This city has been used in most ancient period films like “Kingdom of Heaven”, “Conan the Barbarian”, and “The Promise.” However, this city is also going to look great in any genre of film production as the locations are unique.
Due to its arid landscape, numerous Spaghetti Westerns were filmed in Almería, and some of the sets still remain as a tourist attraction. However, Almeria also contains a coastline and seascapes for your film production. An example of a blockbuster production that used many landscapes in Almeria is “Game of Thrones” from The desert of Tabernas to the coast of Cabo de Gata natural park.
