THE GREAT ROUTE OF FILM BY ANDALUSIA
Archaeological ensemble of Itálica, Santiponce, Sevilla

Itálica is a Roman city founded in year 206 b. C. which actually extended to a 128-acre area and had a significant strategic importance not only on political and economic levels, but also on a military level. Located in the town of de Santiponce (Seville), it has the world’s third largest Roman amphitheatre. Birthplace of the emperors Trajan and Hadrian, the archaeological complex currently offers the possibility to visit its breathtaking amphitheatre as well as the possibility to view the layout of the streets and Roman houses and learn how they lived back in those days.

Here was filmed…

In ‘Game of Thrones’ , Itálica is Dragonpit, the place where Targaryen kept their dragons. Some of the most important scenes in the last chapter of the seventh season were shot in the amphitheatre from the archaeological complex. These sequences gathered together the greatest number of leading characters of all the seasons aired up to that moment – from Jon Snow, Daenerys, Tyrion, Cersei and Jaime, to Brienne, Varys, Theon Greyjoy, The Hound Dog, Sir Davos, Bronn or Jorah Mormont, including Euron Greyjoy, Podrick, Missandei, the Mountain or Qyburn. They meet to agree to a truce among the different pretenders to the Iron Throne before the imminent arrival of the White Walkers hordes.

In La Peste’, the Roman city of Itálica is used to recreate, on the one hand, a clandestine printing found by Mateo during his research and, on the other hand, its vomitorium are the underground corridors, tunnels and basements where some of the prosecutions included in the show takes place. Italica’s springs were also used to recreate some of the cells of the lost Castillo de San Jorge, headquarters of the Holy Inquisition.

It has also been shot here ‘Harem’, with Omar Sharif and Ava Gardner, ‘La forza del destino’, an opera performed by Plácido Domingo or the documentaries ‘Sevilla clásica’ and ‘Andalucía siempre’ by Juan Lebrón.
