The city Seville is very beautiful, the weather is nice (almost every day), there is much diversity in architecture and Seville has a rich history. All these reasons were probably also some of the reasons why many movies and series were shot in this city. Are you curious about which movies and series? You can read it in this blog!
A chase by bulls in Seville?!
One of the movies is “Knight and Day” this is an American action-comedy. The movie is about June (Cameron Díaz) and Roy's (Tom Cruise) dangerous adventures around the world, for example being chased by bulls in Seville, which is a little crazy because the running of the bulls is always in Pamplona.
Some of the scenes in the movie “Knight and Day” were shot in Seville. In the movie, you’ll see Sevilla Santa Justa, the main rail station of Seville as ‘Salzburg Bahnhof’. There are also shots of the Cathedral of Seville, the biggest gothic cathedral of the world, Plaza de Toros, a bullring, and the Casa de Pilatos, an Andalusian palace.
