The Force is Strong in Sevilla
This is Plaza de España in Sevilla, Spain. A place where they shot Naboo palace in Star Wars!
I did not know this when I visited this magnificent spot, and we stumbled upon it almost by mistake. (Looking at the map of Seville and oh there’s this place called Plaza de España. We still have some spare time before dark, let’s check it out.)
And boy I’m glad we did because as soon as we laid eyes on it, we literally squealed with excitement and ran amok to take pictures. (I did not see my travel companion for a long time..)
What follows are the result of the photo session. Chronologically, so you can see how it gets darker as you get to the end. Click on the pictures to enlarge.
Some hardcore Star Wars fans visit the place in mid afternoon so they can take pictures with the same shadow direction as the images in the movie, but I absolutely loved that we got here at dusk. I did not even filter any of these pictures, the colors are genuine.
Here’s the clip from the movie, showing Plaza de España. The force is strong in Sevilla! ;)
