Atlas of Wonders Author


Ever been watching a movie or series and wished you could travel to the world on screen? Atlas of Wonders is the number one solution for all your filming location doubts. We make the best guides for the latest movies and TV shows, tirelessly seeking wonderful shooting locations all around the world.

We are constantly updating and improving our posts with fresh information and images, thanks to our collaborators, readers, and our network of contacts in the film industry. Furthermore, we always link to our sources. All the information published is verified to make sure that the content is trustworthy.

Unlike other websites reporting on filming locations, our content is original and personally researched. You’ll often find hidden gems and tidbits that we’ve uncovered through our shrewd detective work. AoW is one of the few sites where you can still find genuine, first-hand information.

Check out the archive for a full list of the movies and TV shows that we have investigated. Each production is broken down by key places with descriptions and images, as well as links to a map of the actual location.

Raziel Leiva - Editor, Connector of Worlds, and Pop Culture Guru

Raziel Leiva, or Papa Razi as his friends call him, was raised in the US by Mexican parents, so he is culturally an inbetweener. It’s a beautiful place to be because you can freely adapt to many worlds and connect people across the universe, which is one of the reasons he has loved stories (especially movies and books) since he was three years old after watching Return of the Jedi and going to the library for the first time. Raziel uses his journalism experience from Illinois State University, his knowledge of many cultures, and his experience of living amongst many of them, to bring people together through many organizations.
