SPANISH NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL
Now we are facing one of the most famous facades in the world, the headquarters of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). In Money Heist, it simulates the Royal Mint because the original is placed in a relatively narrow street. It does not have enough space for a shooting set of these dimensions. The chosen location is an enclosure closed to the public, which greatly facilitated the control of the shooting.
The famous bank notes shower scene from Money Heist season 3 takes place in one of the most central squares of the capital, Plaza de Callao. This location is an unmissable stop on a trip to Madrid, it’s like a mini Time Square.
MINISTRY OF PUBLIC WORKS AND TRANSPORT: THE BANK OF SPAIN
