Lua Vermelha

Lua Vermelha


The Colégio Vale da Luz (Valley of Light Boarding School), a boarding school located in the middle of the Sintra Mountains, is a fierce institution known for its discipline and the way it shapes and prepares its students, several of which are in a peculiar or critical situation (either orphans, problematic teenagers or gifted ones), that for obvious reasons don't fit in the usual school system. It is there where Isabel, a 17-year-old girl who just lost her parents, will find friends and a mystical, mysterious and impossible love. When her parents died, Isabel was put under her uncles' care, but they only care for her money. On her first day at school, a very special boy will catch her eyes, maybe even too special.

Hanging out only with his "siblings", Afonso Azevedo is known, just like them, for being attractive, ethereal and untouchable. What no one knows is that Afonso and his "siblings", Beatriz and Henrique, hold a very old and dangerous secret: they are vampires. A typical Romeo and Juliet kind of story with a mystical and magic touch, that may just end with a happy ending.

Filming location

In Lua Vermelha, the characters meet in two main sets: The mountains and the boarding school.

Most of the vampire scenes take place in the Sintra Mountains. All of the wild and forest-like scenes are recorded there.

The outside of the Colégio Vale da Luz (Valley of Light Boarding School) was filmed in Cascais at the Palace of the Condes de Castro Guimarães (also known as the Tower of St. Sebastian), a 19th-century palace built in a small cove which stretches to the ocean.

The image sequences that appear sometimes were filmed in the Convento dos Capuchos and in the Sintra Mountains.

The inside of buildings (the school, the bar and the headquarters of Eternal Light) were all filmed in a studio.
