And this year, Kiss Day will have to catch us at home or in our province.
With the restrictions due to COVID19 still in effect, traveling to that special place where you gave your first kiss to that amazing person is no longer an option.
But how will you stay if we assure you that they exist other ways of traveling?
Spain has been the site of hundreds of famous films for many years, and today we will explore some of its most romantic enclaves.
Ready? Let’s go there!
Impossible Juan Juan Bayona
The Asian tsunami of 2004 is one of the worst natural disasters we have witnessed in our lifetime.
However, in addition to the great rivers of pain and tears, it also left room for a love story worth telling.
That’s what Juan Antonio Bayona thought in 2012 when he decided to recreate the film in Alicante.
That kiss after such a long search for each other happened on the Mediterranean coast.
Sandman José Manuel González-Berbel
It was in 2007 when this film was released starring María Valverde and Hugo Silva.
It is a story that takes place in the psychiatric hospital of Mérida and which tells of the love between Mateo, a globetrotter, and Lola, a woman who has been abused since she was just a child.
In addition to Mérida, the settings you will find in this film are part of other municipalities in Badajoz, such as Salvaleón or Bankruptcy.
Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona Woody Allen
You don’t have to be very smart to know where this movie is located, do you? The city of Barcelona has chosen Woody Allen to live a very curious story.
It tells the story of two young Americans who, during a visit to Spain, eventually fell in love with the same man, Juan Antonio, a very charismatic painter.
As if that wasn’t enough, the painter’s ex-wife Maria Elena also makes the work even more interesting.
This film, in addition to Barcelona, was shot in Avilés and Oviedo.
Put Emilio Estévez
It’s not a love story like the previous ones, but maybe that’s why it’s even deeper.
In this film, the protagonist makes the Camino de Santiago after his son died trying to complete it.
Most of the action is filmed in the province of Burgos: Redecilla del Camino, Tosantos, San Juan de Ortega, the capital of Burgos, Rabé de las Calzadas, Hornillos, San Bol, the ruins of the monastery of San Antón, the hostel El Molino and Castrojeriz.
The spark of life – Álex de la Iglesia
In particular, this film is being shot in Cartagena, and the city itself is the protagonist of its history.
After trying to find out what happened in Paradise hotel where he stayed during his honeymoon with his wife, publicist Roberto found a no-go area for workers digging up a Roman theater.
An accident will change your life forever.
Star Wars – Episode II: Attack of the Clones George Lucas
One of the most beautiful scenes between the young Anakin Skywalker and Padme takes place in the city of Seville.
Its square in Spain has become Naboo, one of the desert planets visited throughout history.
These are some of the movies in which the Spanish city was the main character of the love scene.
It was everything. From science fiction to history, going through all the genres you can imagine.
And these are just a few examples of everything you can discover!
