Situated in the extreme south-west of Europe, with its mild climate, 3000 hours of sunshine per year and 850 kms of splendid beaches bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal is a country with perfect conditions for productions all year long. Due to its unique geography, you can find an amazing variety of locations in an incredibly short distance.
There is something magical about the light of Lisbon, which was captured by Wim Wenders in his films “Lisbon Story” and “The state of things”, or by Bille August in the “Nighttrain to Lisbon”. The city of Porto also attracted the director (and actor) John Malkovich, to film “Dancer Upstairs”, and long before Harry Potter cast his spell on the world, Portugal (specially Porto) inspired J.K. Rowling in creating her stories. The Alentejo landscapes also became set to the film “The House of the Spirits” with Antonio Banderas and Meryl Streep.
Did you know that the most famous international spy, James Bond, was “created” by Ian Flemming when he was in Estoril? The Casino of Estoril gave him the inspiration to write “Casino Royale” and “On his majesty’s secret service” appear many scenes of Praia do Guincho.
Portugal also featured in several international TV shows, like “Parts Unknown” and “No Reservations, from the late Anthony Bourdain, that filmed in Azores, Porto and Lisbon; or the program”60 Minutes” with Anderson Cooper that filmed “Riding the waves with Garrett McNamara” in Nazaré.
