FILM TOUR AROUND SPAIN
While there are no flights to Spain, we are offering you to visit the sunny kingdom via the silver screen. Spain has always been a popular filming location, and here are some films for all tastes that will allow you to have a walk around Spain’s most picturesque corners without leaving your home.
The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)
The third film of the franchise follows the same recipe for success as its predecessors. Here you will find a hardboiled plot, tension, impressive fight scenes, but most importantly there is Madrid, to be precise, the famous railway station, Atocha. The station is to welcome the protagonist, James Bourne, and before he leaves the capital, he has enough time to walk around this splendidly beautiful city.
The Name of the Rose (1986)
A legendary film based on the no less legendary book by Umberto Eco. Despite that most of the film, the main character interpreted by Sean Connery spent in the specially built decorations, the castle of Molina de Aragon in Guadalajara also plays a significant role in the film and provides you with the chance to dive into the atmosphere of the Medieval Castile.
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (2006)
The notorious thriller based on the novel by Patrick Suckind is tightly linked to Barcelona and the region of Catalonia. In the film, the Gothic Quarter was transformed into Paris, the street market became the location of the famous final scene, and Figueras and its surroundings served as the mountains, forests, and caves of the tale.
Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones (2002)
An iconic episode of one of the most popular films in history. The director George Lucas was so impressed with the unique beauty of the Square of Spain in Seville that turned it into the centre of the planet Naboo. It is here where the key scene with the space opera takes place.
While at War (2019)
This recent film depicts one of the most complex periods in the history of Spain, namely the Civil War (1936-1939). What is particularly relevant is that the film reflects the events of those years through the life of Miguel Unamuno, one of the brightest writers and thinkers of the twentieth century. Almost all the film was shot in the city of Salamanca, and watching this motion picture is like walking around the beautiful “golden city” (as the Spanish call it).
