“It´s SO good to be good”, Salinas de San Pedro, Spain

pajaricoThe salt flats of  the regional park landscapes have been the setting for many movies. The Municipal Palace of Baron Benifayó Museum allows us to capture much of the essence of San Pedro del Pinatar by scenes that have appeared on the big screen.  The beauty of the coast of San Pedro del Pinatar and Cartagena shown in films like Missione speciale Lady Chaplin (1966), a James Bond style movie, or the most recent “Night of the Brother” featuring famous spanish actors like Luis Tosar and Iciar Bollain in the cast, and “Sound of the sea”, directed by Bigas Luna, a love story starring Leonor Watling , Eduard Fernández and Jordi Molla.   It’s also worth mentioning the movie “Grudge” (2002) by Miguel Albaladejo featuring Jorge Perugorría , Elena Anaya and Lolita Flores. You may remember the song “Caramba, beach chairCarambita” which was part of the soundtrack of this film, in which the Andalusian actress, Lola Flores daughter, walks through the Old Windmill Path, next to the famous mud baths.  But undoubtedly the best film in which nature and tranquility of the Regional Park is shown is “Pajarico” (Little Bird, 1997) directed by Carlos Saura. In it the great actor Paco Rabal gives us an unforgettable scene on the Mediterranean beaches of La Llana. Sitting on a wicker chair looks at people walking along the shore and children playing while reciting: How beautiful life isHow beautiful the sea…It´s so good to be good”
