Not my choice of a movie, but when I saw Knight and Day (starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz), I got excited seeing Sevilla, Spain and how it covered most of its tourist spots at the end of the movie. I’ll just go through the pictures as how the movie features the highlights of the location, if memory serves me right.
The Alcazar is this spacious royal palace of sophisticated, majestic architecture. As a matter of fact, royal families still live there whenever they please. Keep an eye on the designs. They really are sophisticated and intricate.
It also has this huge garden. The movie actually has a lot of walking involved all over this palace.
With the nearby cathedral, the green garden of small ponds and ornament walkways and this (picture below) timeworn structure, Filipinos can’t help to reminisce its resemblance to Philippine Intramus.
The Seville Cathedral, aka The Cathedral of Saint Mary, is the third largest church in the world.
The tower (first picture above) is called La Giralda. Its very top is the statue of La Giraldillo. You can spot its replica (picture below) on the ground and on the side of the cathedral.
The movie Knight and Day continues on with a chase around the area leading to a bullring called La Maestranza. By then, I was oh-ing and ow-ing recalling my unregrettable visit to the arena.
The movie finishes with a stretch to the park along Guadalquivir River, highlighting a watchtower called Torre del Oro.
