The city of Tarragona is pure Mediterranean essence. With good connections and located less than an hour away from Barcelona, it has a Roman legacy declared World Heritage by the UNESCO. Other attractive features that make it stand out are its unique old mediaeval quarter, fifteen kilometres of coast with fine, golden sandy beaches, crystalline water coves, promenades and one of the most important ports in Europe.
Its weather, light and great diversity of landscapes mean the city has become a magnificent set for any television, advertising or film production. The Catalan capital has already been the setting for shooting films like “Yo soy la Juani” (2006, Bigas Lunas), “Los ojos de Julia" (2010, Guillem Morales), “Fill de Caín” (2013, Jesús Monllaó), “Segon origen” (2015, Carles Porta and Bigas Luna), “Sonata per a Violoncel” (2015, Anna Bofarrull), "Secuestro" (2016, Mar Targarona) and "En tu cabeza: Cabra y oveja" (2016, Kike Maillo). Between 2012 and 2014, the city became the third set location in Catalonia for the number of audiovisual productions shot here.
Given the great potential within the municipal area, the Tarragona Film Office, associated with the Catalunya Film Commission, is at the audiovisual industry’s disposal and offers, completely free of charge, help to find shooting locations, permit processing, coordination of the different municipal services that may be required and production logistics, with the aim of being a valuable support tool for the sector’s professionals.
