El Chorro and Caminito del Rey are two popular filming locations for movies, TV shows, and music videos due to their picturesque landscapes and dramatic scenery. One notable production that features scenes shot in El Chorro is “The Bridge,” a Swedish-Danish TV crime series that aired from 2011 to 2018. The show is known for its gripping storylines and stunning visuals, and El Chorro’s rugged terrain provided the perfect backdrop for many of its most dramatic moments.

In addition to “The Bridge,” the Caminito del Rey has also been featured in several productions over the years. One of the most notable is “Doctor Who,” a popular British sci-fi series that has been on the air since 2005. An episode of the show was filmed in the Caminito del Rey, with the area’s rocky cliffs and scenic vistas serving as the backdrop for some of the episode’s most memorable scenes.

Another production that has featured El Chorro is the 2016 film adaptation of “Assassin’s Creed,” a popular video game franchise. The film stars Michael Fassbender as the lead character and features a scene shot in El Chorro, where the character performs a daring stunt that involves jumping from a high platform and landing on a moving train.

Finally, a music video for the Korean band “Every Single Day” was filmed in the Caminito del Rey in 2015. The video, which is for the song “The Beauty Inside,” features stunning shots of the area’s rugged landscape and breathtaking views, showcasing the beauty of El Chorro and the Caminito del Rey to a global audience.
