Winter Is Here 33 Game Of Thrones Locations In Pictures
Game of Thrones may be over for another year, but there’s no need to wait another year to relive your favorite scenes from the hit HBO series. Here are 44 filming locations from all 6 seasons so that you can revisit the Seven Kingdoms and beyond without leaving your sofa! Find out exactly where Game of Thrones was filmed in
- Northern Ireland
Girona, Catalonia (Oldtown, Braavos)
The crew of Game of Thrones have been filming quite a bit in this medieval city, about an hour north of Barcelona. Scenes for season six have apparently been filmed in the monumental Girona Cathedral, standing at the top of its sweep of steps, as well as the old Jewish Quarter and the Arab Baths. Everything seems to point towards Girona being the setting for Oldtown in the free city of Braavos, home to the Citadel where all the maesters of the Seven Kingdoms receive their training. It may be victim of an attack by Euron Greyjoy. Or maybe we will see Sam studying to become a maester before returning to the Wall. Stay tuned to find out…
Bardenas Reales, Navarre (Dothraki Sea)
A stunning desert-like landscape dotted with odd rock formations close to the town of Tudela in north-east Spain, the Bardenas Reales Natural Park has got to be one of the most hauntingly beautiful GoT filming locations ever. Appearing for the first time in the sixth season, exactly what will take place is still hush-hush, but it looks like dragon queen Daenerys Targaryen is set to meet with an unfriendly khalassar, another Dothraki tribe, here.
Peñiscola, Valencia (Dorne or Meereen)
The spectacular fortified town in Valencia is another ‘Thrones location making its debut this coming season. Dubbed ‘the City in the Sea’ after its romantic peninsula location, we don’t know which role Peñiscola will play, but those in the know believe it may be Dorne or Meereen.
Alcazaba, Almeria (Dorne)
Lying on Spain’s southern coast, a world away from tourist resort Malaga, the golden colours of the Almeria province were used extensively during the shooting of GoT season six. Although the sturdy walls of Almeria City’s tenth century castle the Alcazaba are keeping their secrets for now, we can speculate that it may have something to do with the feisty kingdom of Dorne…
Pechina, Alhamila Mountains, Almería (Dothraki Sea)
HBO’s film crew headed into the Alhamila mountains for Game of Thrones in 2015, following in the footsteps of Ridley Scott for his film, Exodus. It may be that we will see a bit more of the Dothraki people here, and it’s easy to see that the jagged sierras and unspoiled scrubland would be perfect as their homeland – the vast plains of the Dothraki Sea.
Alhamila Mountains, Almería, Spain
Santa Florentina Castle, Canet de Mar, Barcelona (Horn Hill)
Santa Florentina, an eleventh century fortress north of Barcelona, will be transformed into the seat of House Tarly (Horn Hill) in season six. Surrounded by greenery and redesigned by Art Nouveau architect Lluis Domenech I Montaner, the castle’s many turrets and elegant courtyards are rumoured to be ravaged by an epic upcoming battle in the Game of Thrones universe.
Zafra Castle, Guadalajara (Tower of Joy)
Known popularly as “the fortress of Spain’s Siberia” (the area can be quite cold in the winter), Zafra Castle is Emmy-worthy in itself, with its commanding tower stood on the rocks above Campillo de Dueñas, in northeast Spain. And it looks like we might find out why Ser Arthur Dayne was thought to be the best swordsman in Westeros, as well as seeing one of the most awaited moments of the new series of Game of Thrones here – a flashback of Lyanna Stark’s death in the Tower of Joy…
