Where is Knightfall filmed?

Knightfall is a new production of A+E Studios for History Channel, arriving after the great success of Vikings. The series takes place between the 13th and 14th centuries, following the real events that led to the persecution and fall of the Knights Templar. Part of the plot is set in Paris, after the loss of Jerusalem and Acre during the Crusades wars in the Holy Land.

This epic drama stars Tom Cullen as Landry, leader of the Order, Simon Merrells as the knight Tancrede, Pádraic Delaney as Gawain, Ed Stoppard as Philip IV of France and Sabrina Barlett as Princess Isabella.

Knightfall was filmed in Czech Republic and in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Here is a spoiler-free guide to the filming locations of the series. You can also open these places on Google Maps, clicking on the links below the captions:
