Castilla y Leon is a land with skill and dedication to the film, in which many actors are born and how. Here, very early in the cinema was a form of expression in future.
Attention, the fotogenia of our historic buildings, a wonderful tool for directors of photography and stage. We also have a landscape of contrasts where you can recreate as we have seen any country and time.
It may seem rhetorical, but it is necessary to speak of the light of this earth, not only for its quality but for the good amount of sunny days and hours of light per day that are beneficial to filmmakers.
Do not forget, respect and tranquility that the people of Castile and Leon are facing these major events. The peace with which to work and live the big stars in our cities and towns. This has led many players to return from leave, even to settle here.
All this has not changed since the 50s. What has changed is that Castile and Leon has become a coveted destination for visitors. Its restaurants and hotels of prestige in Europe. Food and wine are a successful international trade fairs. Its roads, railways and airports close and cover distances of the largest of the European Community in a time negligible. But the best value to the export of Castile and Leon is his story, a story full of wealth.
Your name makes clear reference to its origins, a land full of castles (Castilla) are preserved since the Middle Ages, which was settled by the legion VII (Leon) in the Roman Empire.
A land that still retains important vestiges of Rome. That has walls and medieval towns where they live in peace in the Middle Ages the three religions (Jews, Muslims and Christians). During the Renaissance it became a world power, finance Columbus' voyage to America and being the master of the destiny of Europe. Become a place of luxurious French family court of the Bourbons in the eighteenth century. A land that attracted romantic painters and photographers from around the world.
A magical place. An area almost utopian. Where you can see all European artistic styles (Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassicism ,...); often beautiful Germanic influences, Arabic, Hebrew, Flemish, of Native Americans, French or Italian.
