Visit the Set of the Rock
Alcatraz, San Francisco
Alcatraz is well known around the world for its history mainly as an old American civil war fort and a prison. Numerous movies have been filmed here but the most famous is Escape from Alcatraz and The Rock. Escape from Alcatraz is obviously about an escape from Alcatraz starring Clint Eastwood.
In The Rock, Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage infiltrate the island to stop a group of rogue US Marines led by Ed Harris from launching a chemical weapons attack upon the San Francisco Bay area. You can understand why the inmates tried to escape when you see the view of San Francisco from Alcatraz.
