A city being part of a movie set has always an added advertising. The peculiarities of the Canary Islands have been used a few times to be the landscape of many movies that needed a “different place” to be filmed, the last case is of ‘Wrath of the Titans’.
Some scenes of the film were shot at the Cliffs of the Giants, one of the most spectacular sceneries on Tenerife.
The vertical walls of the cliffs of the Giants reach 600 metres. Teide National Park was also the scene of the shooting in the film. This park contains the best examples of mediterranean vegetation. At an average altitude over 2,000 meters, the Teide National Park offers one of the most spectacular examples of volcanism worldwide and represents the best example of alpine volcanic ecosystem of the Canary Islands.
Tenerife Tourism has begun to develop a series of tours around the scenes of the biggest productions that took place on the island. And the first tour is the route for the movie ‘Wrath of the Titans’, released in 2012.
The detailed brochure of this route invites tourists to explore the island through the eyes of Perseus and living unique experiences from the Teide National Park, where you can spend the night.
About 2000 productions have been filmed, from those films 192 are Spanish, 190 German and 117 british.
Tenerife Film Commission has provided support to 814 films, recordings and photo shoots, which has been a tool to promote the island as a natural holiday destination.
