Lush green rolling hills


Bubbling brooks

Spain’s sheer size gives it a phenomenal diversity of film locations. In the county of Navarra which is situated in the north you can find Lush green rolling hills dotted with brooks and streams that bubble with pure fresh water. This thirst quenching image comes from the village of Baztan and it’s not long before this stream widens as it enters the township. Baztan is located about 35 miles from Pamplona the capital of Navarre. A land filled with traditions and customs that could be twined to a cross between the Scottish highlands and the Lake District. This area of Spain is magical for filming or as a holiday destination.
