Get to know the places in Barcelona where

Barcelona, the city that has always been a picturesque and evocative backdrop for movies and TV series, has once again taken center stage with the runaway success of “The Body on Fire,” Netflix’s latest sensation.

This series of intrigue and suspense has captivated viewers around the world and part of its charm lies in the emblematic locations in Barcelona where it was filmed.

However, it is important to understand that filming in Barcelona is no easy task. The directors and producers of “El Cuerpo en Llamas” knew this very well. Jorge Torregrossa, co-director and executive producer of the series, points out that “shooting in Barcelona is always complicated”.

They often encounter logistical and practical challenges when filming on the streets of this bustling city. However, they managed to capture the essence of Barcelona in an exceptional way.

Exploring the scenarios of “El Cuerpo en Llamas” in Barcelona

We tell you about some of the corners of Barcelona that served as a backdrop for this exciting series.

One of the most iconic places in the series is the Miramar Gardens viewpoint in Montjuïc. In this scenario, Úrsula Corberó, who plays Rosa Peral, finds herself in an intense situation. This location offers breathtaking views of the city and provides a unique setting for the plot.

Another highlight is the Medical School Campus, which was transformed into the Courthouse in the series. The interiors of this building were recreated at the headquarters of Foment del Treball in Via Laietana.

The authenticity of Barcelona

One of the production team’s wisest decisions was to film in authentic locations where the real characters used to interact. For example, the real Rosa Peral and Albert Lopez met while working at the Zona Franca police station.

This place, with its cinematic atmosphere, became one of the key settings of the series. Filming on the same streets where these real characters patrolled added an extra layer of realism to the story.

In addition, the crew filmed at the Litoral bar, where the Guardia Urbana used to eat.
