Pontevedra is rich in natural spaces, historical places and resources that can serve as ideal locations and settings for the film sector. Moreover, compared to the rest of Galicia and the north of the Iberian Peninsula, this province has a mild microclimate, so outdoor spaces can be enjoyed most of the year.
It also boasts a large and varied selection of hotels, accommodation establishments and restaurants, as well as excellent rail, air and sea connections thanks to the high-speed train link between Pontevedra and Madrid, three airports (Vigo, Santiago de Compostela and Porto) and the port of Vigo.
