The Narnia Gate in New Zealand (Cathedral Cove)

In the version of The Chronicles of Narnia, Prince Caspian, the Pavensie children (protagonists of the adventure) go through a natural tunnel through which they re-enter the world of Narnia. The “door to Narnia” in the film is depicted in a New Zealand natural setting called Cathedral Cove.

The truth is that beyond the sudden fame of the site through the film, Cathedral Cove is the natural arch that stars in a reserve of 840 hectares visited by thousands of tourists every year. Between small bays and coves, the rock formations are curious and the beauty of the site and the coast are very particular.

In the photos, different angles of the corner of the natural arch that is part of the film. In fact, the rock arch is huge and joins two coves at the foot of cliffs and abundant vegetation. Very close to the arch, a huge rocky promontory known as Te Hoho emerges from the sand with its whimsical shape modeled by the wind and water, as if it were the prow of a supposedly stranded ship:
