There is countries that literally fulfill what they are "Movie". If, in addition, it is the case that the film became one of those called "cult", the result is usually that the country in question - or, at least, the area where the scenes were shot - is It becomes a place of pilgrimage for the thousands of fans who cried, laughed or dreamed of seeing them.

And this type of tourist attraction is no nonsense since, in some cases, it is a great source of income for the inhabitants of the "graceful" regions.

Here I leave you a list of countries or places that when you visit them will transport you to the world of your favorite movies.

New Zealand and The Lord of the Rings

Not even living the endless life of an elf, Peter Jackson could have found a better place in our world today to reflect Middle Earth imagined by the great J.R.R. Tolkien. The South African writer created a complex world of diverse races, languages ​​and landscapes where the battle between good and evil revolves around a ring.

Tolkien describes Middle-earth as a place of contrasts and extreme beauty. New Zealand it makes you run out of epithets to reflect all its greatness and plasticity.

Brave rivers, calm lakes, snowy mountain chains, soft green hills, volcanic landscapes, forests and jungles, endless beaches, glaciers and fjords. New Zealand is an ode to nature and a country that asks to be explored in your own vehicle and at your own pace. No hurries.

Thus you will arrive at Tongariro, where Sauron polluted the land of Mordor; to the famous Routeburn trek, near Queenstown, where Saruman's uruk-hai killed the brave Boromir; or the Twizel steppes, close to the imposing mount cook, where the battle of the Pelennor Fields takes place, the most important in the saga of The Lord of the Rings.

The list of locations reaches twenty but the most faithful to reality is that of the hobbit holes created in a farm near Matamata, on the North Island. There they left everything standing after the movie and one feels transported to the world of Tolkien when he wanders down the hill of Closed Baggins or sees from afar the Green Dragon inn. The holes and others were created by the operators of the film, but the hills and their green tapestries were already there.

A place to dream.
