Determined to help Amaya’s parents reunite with their missing daughter, a young intern journalist named Miren Rojo embarks on a quest to find the whereabouts of the girl.

As per reports, the principal photography for the inaugural iteration of the crime show commenced in February 2022 and wrapped up in late May of the same year.

A majority of ‘The Snow Girl’ is lensed in and around Málaga, the second most populous city in the autonomous community of Andalusia. The production team sets up camp in various neighborhoods across the city, including El Palo, Soho, Capuchinos, and Guadalmar, to record important sequences for the series. The public square in the heart of Málaga, Plaza de la Constitución, also serves as a prominent production location. Reportedly, the filming unit decorated the shops of the square with Christmas decorations and stalls to give it the ideal look for specific scenes in the debut season of the show.

Moreover, the district of Carretera de Cádiz and Calle Atarazanas feature in quite a few sequences of ‘The Snow Girl.’ Situated in the south of the Iberian Peninsula, Málaga’s economy is driven by several sectors, mainly construction, technology services, tourism, logistics, and transportation. It hashas many tourist sights and attractions, including the Church of the Holy Martyrs, the Church of the Sacred Heart, Atarazanas Market, and the Museo Picasso Málaga.

It appears that the cast and crew members travel across the city to shoot various scenes against suitable backdrops. Located right at the center of the Iberian peninsula on the southern Meseta Central, Madrid is considered one of the top European destinations when it comes to museums, as it is home to many, such as Prado Museum and the Reina Sofía Museum.
