New initiative to promote film tourism in Andalucía

Andalucia Destino de Cine, a new film tourism project recently launched by the Junta de Andalucía and the Andalusian Film Commission, is encouraging tourists to visit the many filming locations of both Spanish and international movies.

A new website (currently in Spanish) features ‘film routes’, making it easy for you to work your way through the different scenes of films shot in Andalucía, from famous award-winning Spanish movies to Hollywood greats.

So if you’re keen to see where Lawrence of Arabia had lunch in Seville; or where Indiana Jones landed his plane in a chase scene; which beach Halle Berry famously stepped out of the sea in Die Another Day; or where the final shootout in the Good, the Bad and the Ugly took place, why not go and see these fantastic locations for yourself?

What exactly makes Andalucía such an amazing film location?

From the arid Guadalquivir River valley through to luscious, green mid-mountain areas and from the otherworldly, volcanic Tabernas Desert to the snowy peaks of Sierra Nevada all just a short drive from Spain’s Mediterranean and Atlantic shores, Andalucía has landscapes to suit even the most exacting of location scouts.

The coast stretches for almost 900 kilometres and boasts stunning cities and towns, steeped in history and culture.
The entire region is one of constant inspiration for all kinds of artists, so it follows that film directors the world over move their crews out of the studio and into Andalucía.
What’s more, a sunny climate and modern, well-developed infrastructure make it all so easy to access.
