With elaborate Moorish palaces, fairy-tale gardens, and grand medieval castles, the Spanish cities of Girona, Seville, and Osuna made ideal shooting locations for HBO's Game of Thrones. Here are a few highlights you can check out while visiting.
The capital of Andalucia, Seville is one of southern Spain's top destinations thanks to its unique blend of Christian and Moorish architecture. The city's diverse mix of eye-catching buildings, palaces, and cathedrals made it a perfect double for GoT's fictional cities of Dorne and Meereen. Key filming sites include the UNESCO-listed Alcazar Palace of Seville, which doubles as House Martell and the Water Gardens of Dorne with its pools, fountains, and gardens that saw the intrigue of characters such as Prince Doran and the "Sand Snake" daughters of Oberyn Martell play out.
Follow in the footsteps of Tyrion, King Joffrey, and Arya Stark on an exclusive Game of Thrones walking tour of the medieval city of Girona and its Old Town to explore locations seen on-screen as King's Landing and the free city of Braavos. The city, set just north of Barcelona on Spain's Costa Brava and often visited on a day trip from the capital, is so proud of its Game of Thrones connection that you'll even find an ice cream flavor—King's Hand—inspired by the series.
Sleepy Osuna, often combined with Game of Thrones tours to Seville, is a popular stop for fans thanks to its use for scenes set in Meereen. The city's Plaza de Toros bullring made an appearance as Daznak’s Pit, one of Meereen's great fighting arenas.
