Spain is full of surprising places where some of the most famous series on television have been filmed. From small towns that seem taken from another time to spectacular natural parks or large cities Indie Campers has selected seven destinations where you can relive some of the scenes from Game of Thrones, Vis a Vis or Killing Eve.
Bardenas Reales (Navarra): Game of Thrones
Throughout the eight seasons that the series lasted, we were able to recognize some places in Spain such as El Real Alcázar de Sevilla, which was used as the Jardines del Agua de los Martell; Girona, which became King’s Landing or, San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, which became Dragonstone. In fact, there were quite a few locations that were used in our country to stage the dispute for the Iron Throne. However, from Indie Campers, they recommend us to visit the Bardenas Reales Natural Park in Navarra for its impressive landscape, a space that many will remember as the Dothraki Sea, which appeared in the first and sixth episodes of the sixth season.
Barcelona: Killing Eve
One of the most shocking series of recent years has been this production starring Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh, in which an MI6 agent chases a hit man with exquisite and luxurious tastes all over Europe while creating a special and unique bond. Paris, London, Amsterdam … are some of the great capitals that have served as locations for the series which, in its third season, finally arrived in our country to shoot in some streets of the Catalan capital such as Born and Lesseps squares and the Barceloneta.
Tejeda (Gran Canaria): Black Mirror
This British science fiction series became, from its first episode, a reference point for the dangers of the future due to its dystopian vision of society. Thanks to the fact that its episodes are self-concluding, the series has been able to move freely in different settings throughout its five seasons. This allowed the team to move to the town of Tejeda on the island of Gran Canaria to film the end of it in its old town in the ‘Hate Nacional’ episode of the third season.
Almería: Vis a Vis
This Spanish series, set in a prison, has become one of the great phenomena of national fiction. After five seasons, the last one released this year, it is to be expected that when we see it we will recognize many places in our country in it. However, from Indie Campers, they recommend us to visit two beaches in Almería that will allow us to discover various settings from the series while enjoying a relaxing day: the Peñón Blanco beach, in the town of La isleta del Moro, and Playazo de Rodalquilar, an impressive unspoiled beach of 400 meters of golden sand that is part of the Cabo de Gata Natural Park.
Cabárceno Natural Park (Cantabria): The area
One of the most applauded Spanish series has been this production in which an inspector investigates a murder in an exclusion zone that suffered a serious nuclear accident. Almost the entire series is recorded in the north of Spain and one of the most recognizable places throughout the episodes is the Cabárceno Natural Park.
La Palma: The Witcher
This Netflix production moved to different parts of the Canary Islands to record part of the series. One of the chosen areas was the Cascada de Los Tilos on the island of La Palma, which served as a setting to recreate the Magic Forest of Brokilón. The literary saga on which the series is based and which tells the adventures of the sorcerer Geralt de Rivia, also filmed in other locations on the island such as Llano de las Brujas (in the municipality of El Paso) or Roque de los Muchachos, the highest point of La Palma.
Benasque Valley: Hunting. Monteperdido
This area of the Aragonese Pyrenees is one of the most recognizable in this series that tells of the disappearance of two girls and is based on the best seller by Agustín Martínez. The streets of Benasque and Cerler were used to recreate the fictional town of Monteperdido, while other areas such as Llanos del Hospital, the Ésera river or the Benasque forests were used as natural spaces for many of the locations.
