Released on December 21, 2016, the film adaptation of the Ubisoft game series "Assassin's Creed" reached $87.3 million in its box office sales. It is one of the most expensive movie productions of the year and the studio crew managed to travel around 3 different countries in Europe to make the movie happen.

There are over 5 key locations that provided the scenic backdrop of the movie. As it turns out, these cities have also drawn tourists for their heritage value. The top 5 cities are definitely worth a visit:

Valletta, Malta

The capital city of Malta was once the site of an epic battle during the last years of the Crusader Wars. Known in history books as the "Great Siege," it highlighted the defeat of the once powerful Ottoman Empire in 1565. Hence, the city was named after its champion, Jean de Valette. Valetta is one of the few cases where an entire city is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Manoel Island, Malta

Several scenes were filmed in the Manoel Island located off the northwestern coast of Valetta. Named after the Portuguese grand master of the Knights of St. John, the island was once a quarantine zone for the plague victims in 1570. Now the ancient Lazzaretto hospital and the nearby Duck Village are the island's principal attractions apart from Fort Manoel.

Seville, Spain

Known as the fourth largest city in Spain, Seville was once the capital of three Moorish caliphates, which was later seized by the Christian king named Ferdinand of Castille in 1248. The city's three UNESCO World Heritage Sites include the Alcazar Palace, the Cathedral of Saint Mary and the General Archive of the Indies.  

Almeria, Spain

Known as one of the last cities controlled by the Moors in the early medieval era, Almeria is a city within an arid landscape. Several scenes shot by the "Assassin's Creed" film crew include the nearby Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park and the desert of Tabernas.

London, United Kingdom

The capital city of United Kingdom is worth 2,000 years of cultural evolutions, from the founding of the namesake Ancient Roman outpost to the 19th Century Industrial Revolution. The Freemason's Hall was used by the Assassin's Creed film crew as the fictional headquarters of the villain Templar organization.
