The Stones in the Movies

If some of the monuments featured in this website have appeared in a movie, here below you’ll find the movie title along with a short note. Very rarely a monument is shown in a movie with its real name or function, sometimes these monuments are used to represent something else, even in a totally different place, but sometimes they are mere background items in a scene and have absolutely no purposes in the story.
