Visiting Filming Locations of "The Golden Voyage of Sinbad" (1973) in Mallorca, Balearic Islands

Directed by Gordon Hessler
Produced by Charles H. Schneer & Ray Harryhausen
Written by Brian Clemens & Ray Harryhausen
Based on Sinbad the Sailor from One Thousand and One Nights
Starring John Phillip Law, Tom Baker, Takis Emmanuel & Caroline Munro

The Golden Voyage of Sinbad is a fantasy film in Dynarama released in 1973 and starring John Phillip Law as Sinbad. It includes a score by composer Miklós Rózsa and is known mostly for the stop motion effects by Ray Harryhausen.
The film is the second of three Sinbad films that Harryhausen made for Columbia, the others being The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958) and Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977).

It won the first Saturn Award for Best Fantasy Film.

Producers Charles Schneer and Ray Harryhausen based their production in Spain (Madrid as well as the island of Majorca) to take advantage of the local rugged scenery.
At one point the possibility of filming some scenes at the landmark Alhambra palace in Granada was raised; however, rental fees demanded by local authorities proved prohibitive. Eventually the company was able to film at the Royal Palace of La Almudaina. Other scenes were done in the Caves of Artà (the temple of the Oracle) and the Torrent de Pareis. -Wikipedia
