The Legend Of The Blue Sea: Gianna Jun and Lee Min Ho’s Barcelona Shooting Locations

“Let’s hop a plane to Barcelona, ’cause this city’s a drag.”

Currently airing drama The Legend Of The Blue Sea has had some pretty exotic shooting locations – including Barcelona. (They’re not alone – last year’s The K2 shot on location in the city of Gaudi, too.)

And thus my fondness for the place from my undergrad  days came flooding back. (Ah, to have that kind of production budget. Sigh.)

Here are the places Gianna Jun and Lee Min Ho visited in the Catalan city.

La Palau De La Musica Catalana

And they used it as the supposed exterior of a freaking shopping mall, ha. If only Montaner could see it now. If you think the outside is beautiful, you should check out the inside. At least you can here.

Parròquia de Sant Bartomeu – Sitges

That church where they met up with Ahn Jae Hong’s character (Reply 1988’s Kim Jae Bong) was located in Sitges. The awesome beach town – which is really quaint and lovely (and so much nicer than Barceloneta) is an easy train ride away from Barcelona.

Arc de Triomf

For some reason I can’t remember the Arc de Triomf adjacent to the Parc de la Ciutadella. I remember those paddleboaters in the Parc, though.

They also went gallivanting through A Coruña and Girona among their stunning af shooting locations. I mean, who wouldn’t want a natural salt water swimming pool to wake up to?
