THE GREAT ROUTE OF FILM BY ANDALUSIA
Real Casa de la Moneda, Sevilla

The Royal Mint of Seville was the nerve centre where gold and silver were melted during the times when the Indies were part of the Catholic Monarchy. Situated at the entrance of the city, next to the Torre del Oro and Torre de la Plata towers, it was very close to the harbour and it was incorporated into the city walls. It worked until the 19th century.

Here was filmed…

The Royal Mint was used in Agustín Díaz Yanes’ film Alatriste to personify the scene in the corral de comedias (patios which held theatre plays) where the famous actress María de Castro (Ariadna Gil) premieres a play by Quevedo. The episode in which Francisco Quevedo (Juan Echanove) confides to the captain his plan to influence the complicated political map of Imperial Spain during the 17th century was immortalised in this enclave.
