Kapamilya Snaps: Breathtaking fictional locations in teleseryes that captured our imagination

After months of being cooped up, don’t you wish that you could transport yourself into a different world? Well, even just for a little while, your favorite Kapamilya teleseryes can bring you to mystical places, towns with mysterious stories, and kingdoms straight out of a fairytale. Watch this Kapamilya Snaps compilation and imagine all the exciting adventures these serye settings behold.

If you’re into thrilling places, the town of Las Espadas in The Killer Bride has a chilling story behind it. It was once a peaceful town with lush greenery and abundant farmlands, but suddenly became desolate due to an unfortunate crop plague. No one knows the exact cause but many suspect that a curse was placed upon the town by the ghost of “The Killer Bride” Camila (Maja Salvador).

A magical “dance of the fireflies” once landed in Barrio Maulap but when Buboy (Enzo Pelojero) catches one of the so-called “fireflies”, he meets a lively wishing star named Starla. Together, they grant wishes, bring hope, and inspire forgiveness for the dwellers of Barrio Maulap including the town scrooge Greggy (Joel Torre) and his vengeful daughter Teresa (Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo).

Family secrets, puzzling crimes, and hidden identities surround Poblacion Ardiente in Wildflower. The fierce Lily Cruz (Maja Salvador) amazes us with her devious plan to put an end to the injustices caused by the Ardiente family ruling the town.

The smell of fresh bread surely fills the air of Nueva Valencia, the little community in Make It With You. Billie (Liza Soberano), Gabo (Enrique Gil), and other residents of Nueva Valencia will make you feel all warm inside, not just with all the baking but also with the sweet romance in every episode.

Vacation vibes will definitely get to you when you see El Paraiso in Precious Hearts Romances Araw Gabi. Mich (Barbie Imperial), herself, was pleasantly surprised as she stepped foot on its white sand beach and gazed upon its luscious greenery. But this place has lots more to offer with the countless mysteries that unfold as she explored the island.

Various stories and an intriguing history stem from the province of Punta Verde in Pangako Sa’Yo, but there is one moment that it will forever be known for — the place where Yna (Kathryn Bernardo) and Angelo’s (Daniel Padilla) timeless love story began. We can trace that all the way back to Punta Verde’s fiesta where the fated couple’s parents crossed each other’s paths.

Something strange and scary is happening at the village of El Cuerpo in Parasite Island. As parasitic leeches invade, the islanders start to turn zombie-like. You’ll get a rush of adrenaline  as the characters fight for their lives avoiding the Infected Ones as they escape the island.

The world of Bagani, Sansinukob, is undeniably a place we have never seen before. Each of the five different regions we enter — Desert, Farm, Forest, Sea, and Trade — have something mystical to offer as we discover their powerful heroes, mythical creatures, and elements of magic.

In May Bukas Pa, the world is seemingly normal, except for the town of Bagong Pag-asa. The townspeople are amazingly showered with miracles by the boy blessed by Bro, Santino (Zaijian Jaranilla). The story shines light on faith and features one of the oldest churches in the Philippines, the San Guillermo Parish Church located in Bacolor Pampanga.

Forevermore made us all want to go to Baguio just to be in the same place that Agnes (Liza Soberano) and Xander (Enrique Gil) fell in love, Sitio La Presa. The serene and secluded strawberry-strewn land was a perfect backdrop to all the charming scenes of the two lovebirds.

Be immersed in the royal life in Princess and I. Set in the fictional Kingdom of Yangdon, Mikay (Kathryn Bernardo) discovers that she is the kingdom’s long-lost Princess Areeyah Wangchuck. Throughout the teleserye, you get a wonderful story and glimpses of the beautiful culture and sceneries of Bhutan where it was filmed.
