Albaicín and Centro-Sagrario neighborhood
In ‘Muerte en Granada’, all the street locations represent the same places: from Ricardo’s arrival as a child in the Paseo de los Tristes and in the Cathedral, to his return, as an adult, to investigate Lorca’s death, in the Plaza Nueva and the Plaza de la Universidad. There are also some scenes filmed in the Alhambra, the Royal Hospital, the Bullring, the Faculty of Law, and in the Carmen de los Cipreses, where several scenes of persecutions through the Albaicin took place.
A scene of ‘Wilde’ was recorded at St. John of God Hospital, featuring Michael Sheen and Jude Law. Stephen Fry shot a scene in which he hides behind the door of the Cathedral Tabernacle, and another in which he walks through St. Joseph’s cemetery.
The filming of ‘La luz prodigiosa’ took place in the Plaza de la Trinidad, the streets Ángel Ganivet, Jesús and María e Hileras, as well as in the street San Jerónimo, where Alfredo Landa and Nino Manfredi walk.
A scene of ‘Lorca, muerte de un poeta’, was also shot in this area. It also included the façade and the inside of the Town Hall, the Albaicín neighbourhood, the Carrera del Darro, the Faculty of Law and the street ‘Niños luchando’. The mini-series of Juan Antonio Bardem shares with ‘La luz prodigiosa’ another enclave, the Municipal Library of the Salon.
On Escuelas Street, next to the Botanical Garden, the final scene of ‘Al sur de Granada’ was shot, with Verónica Sánchez, Sandra Wahlbeck and Maite Sandoval. In the same area, a scene from ‘Muerte en Granada’ was also shot, with Esai Morales and Giancarlo Giannini, and another from Wilde in which Michael Sheen and Stephen Fry appear.
