True hardcore cinephiles will get a kick out of knowing that Madrid has its very own walk of fame as a tribute to some of the most prominent and influential personas in the Spanish film business.
The star embedded sidewalk was inaugurated back in 2011 in honor of the 25th anniversary of the Spanish Film Academy, and the initial inauguration presented 25 personalities from different sectors of the film industry. From directors such as Alejandro Amenabar who brought us The Others, to the world renowned actress Penelope Cruz, who can boast having her name on the original walk of fame in Hollywood as well.
The placement of the mementos have been thoroughly thought out, you’ll find them starting at number 12 of Martín de los Heros, a notoriously popular street with two cinemas which have been supporting the Spanish film industry since its start.
This curious sidewalk is located between the Plaza de España and the Templo de Debod (check the Templo de Debod article), two iconic points of interest, so you don’t have to go out of your way to find your favorite Spanish movie star condecoration.
