THE GREAT ROUTE OF FILM BY ANDALUSIA
Plaza de la Colegiata, Osuna, Sevilla

The Nuestra Señora de la Asunción collegiate is a Catholic temple in the town of Osuna (province of Seville), Spain. Construction began around 1531 and it is an outstanding example of Renaissance architecture in Spain, and a religious and cultural symbol of the town of Osuna. It contains numerous paintings by well-known artists such as José de Ribera, Juan Martínez Montañés, Luis de Morales, Hernando de Esturmio, Juan de Mesa, Roque Balduque and Juan de Zamora. It was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 1931.

Here was filmed…

In ‘Callas forever, the Collegiate Square was the site for the representation of Carmen’. Calle San Pedro, which looks like a catalogue or Baroque facades, charmed Italian director Franco Zefirelli and became the location for the walk into the bullring.

Part of the sequences of Carmen in which Prosper Merimée writes, was filmed in the Osuna Collegiate, specifically the scenes in his office and the Collegiate sepulchre. The top of this building, inside and out, also represented the places that Merimée visited in Andalusia.
