SAN JUAN DE AZNALFARACHE: Princess Alice of Battenberg in Athens.
Near the Guadalquivir river it is located San Juan de Aznalfarache, a small city within the metropolitan area of Seville.
Decades ago, there was a military area in San Juan de Aznalfarache. But nowadays that same area is known as Nuestra Señora de Loreto neighbourhood. These were the streets that The Crown transformed into Greece in the show.
