Madrid, the TV Series Capital

  • Folleto Madrid, capital de las series

We invite you to explore Madrid by visiting the locations of some of Spain’s most successful TV series, following a route that we guarantee will leave you as addicted to the city as you are to your favourite shows

These days, most people spend a large part of their free time watching TV series. The fact that 8 out of 10 people in Spain regularly watch one or more shows per week* has led to the number of productions filmed here doubling in recent years. There’s no denying that we’re in the midst of a veritable golden age.

Some of our series are now among the most watched in the world and this has positioned Madrid as a TV series hotspot, not only because it’s home to the audiovisual sector’s biggest companies -Netflix opened its first European production hub here, for instance-, but also because it’s the city with the most filming activity in Spain. Madrid’s streets, buildings and monuments are practically characters in their own right in the productions shot here, often taking on a leading role..
