Movies & TV Shows Shot In Seville

Are you a movie lover like us? If so, then we may just have another reason why you need to visit us in the capital of Andalucia. We’re going to show some of the coolest movies & tv shows shot in seville, from as early as the 1960’s until very recent. Films such as 007 and the primetime Emmy award winning Game of Thrones…

For anyone that’s already been lucky enough to have seen for themselves, it will come as no surprise that this region has attracted so many directors to shoot some of the world’s most iconic scenes in. With its rich architecture and historical legacy, this place is a paradise for movie makers!

So grab your popcorn and get comfy... ready?

Lights, Camera, Action!

STAR WARS EPISODE ll - ATTACK OF THE CLONES (2002)

A scene from Star Wars at the Plaza De Espana

A scene from Star Wars showing a young Padme and Anakin walking through La Plaza de España just after landing on planet Naboo!

Of course we couldn’t hold back from bragging about this one first... Whilst you may not be able to travel to that galaxy far, far away, visiting la Plaza De España is a cool way to immerse yourself in the Star Wars Universe.

With its regal colour scheme and intricate architectural design, there’s no wonder why George Lucas chose this landmark for the perfect setting.

Another view of the young pair approaching the palace, showing off it’s external design and elegant stone floor pattern.

La Plaza de España monument was built for the Ibero-American Exhibition of 1929. Located in María Luisa Park, it was the centrepiece of the exhibition and featured many pavilions, which aspired to show off to the world Spain’s accomplishments in industry and architecture… Well they sure showed us!

But this wasn’t it’s only moment in the spotlight. You may have seen this distinctive building before and didn’t even know it!

The Dictator (2012) starring Sacha Baron Cohen

This is the Italica Amphitheatre, part of a Roman city that’s just a 45 minute bus journey from Seville center. It dates as far back to the year 206 BC and was the birthplace and home to the great emperors, Trajan & Hadrian!

But what has this got to do with movies and TV shows shot in Seville?

That’s right, the Italica or (Khaleesi’s dragons pit) wasn’t just used in one, but two seasons of the Emmy winning show!

Although this wasn’t the first time that Tom was in a bit of a pickle in Seville. He was also here 10 years earlier playing Ethan Hunt in Mission Impossible 2!

Here’s another one for you GOT fans out there! Still in Sevilla, but at one of our most impressive monuments...

The Real Alcazar Palace, Seville

The Real Alcazar. With its distinctive colorful ceramic tiles and renaissance gardens with fountains, flowers, and a maze; you can easily see why the producers of Game of Thrones chose it to be The Kingdom of Dorne and the water gardens of Sunspear.

Game of Thrones: Season 5-6

Myrcella Baratheon walking arm locked on Trystane Martell with the palace garden and fountain in the backdrop

A scene from the HBO show of the newly found couple, Myrcella and Trystane taking a stroll through the palace gardens.

No amount of pictures can do this palace justice, it’s one of those places that you just have to see for yourself. Declared as a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s the oldest palace in Europe that’s still in use.

Rear image of Prince Doran looking over the palace gardens with Ellaria Sand stood by his side.

007 Die another day (2002) Starring Pierce Brosnan

Do you remember Halle Berry emerging from the Habana-like warm waters and reaching the Cuban-like chiringuito? Well, the scene belonging to the 20th film of the James Bond series was actually shot on Cadiz’s beach La Caleta!

A panaramic view of the two actors having a conversation with a view of the sea and the Castle of San Sabastian in the background.

Halle Berry & Pierce Brosnan as they act out their scene on the Cadiz Sea front.

Okay so this isn’t Seville but it’s close enough! If at anytime you fancy day out to beach then you can do so by simply catching the train from Sevilla Santa Justa station.

ANNNNND CUT!

That’s it for now, be sure to keep an eye out to see what else we add to the list in the future!
