Game of Thrones in Spain

Game of Thrones in Spain

When Game of Thrones was shot in Seville, Spain for season 5, the gorgeous gardens and alcazar palace in Seville were chosen to feature the amazing location for the stunning water gardens of Dorne. ( You can check out my post of Seville and the Game of Thrones post here). Now with the start of season six, the production crew is starting to stake out scenic locations throughout the Eastern Catalonia coastal areas of Costa Brava. Some of the targeted sites include the scenic medieval city of Girona and the fortified castle of Peniscola which juts out from the seaside resort. Both of these cities are already popular tourist attractions in their own, but with the increase interest of locations used on the Game of Thrones productions, many of the iconic spots chosen will be even more popular visiting spots.

Here are a few highlights of the areas in both destinations worth visiting and checking out the stunning medieval architecture and vistas that may be a part of the Game of Thrones series for Season 6.

The historic and medieval areas of old Girona are quite stunning and very well preserved including many of the ramparts, towers, churches and old sections of the city. The City contains a beautiful river, canals and old bridges that span the historic areas and offer magnificent views to the historic districts and medieval architecture. The main attraction and probable location setting for the Game of Thrones series is speculating that the cathedral could be utilized for season 6. There are many gorgeous parts of the medieval cathedral which looks to be the best choice of filming, including the old town with the Jewish area, which is filled with medieval architecture and cobbled streets. Many speculate that both the old town and cathedral are going to be filmed to represent the Citadel, Braavos or Kings Landing.

The views from the different ramparts and towers of Girona are beautiful and may also be featured into the filming with natural views to the landscape and scenic countryside.

Scouting crews have been seen investigating scenic areas of the coastline and perhaps may utilize some of the beautiful views of the Costa Brava region and more of the medieval ruins or fortresses located throughout the region. If your a die hard Game of Thrones fan, look out for these locations for season 6 and maybe you’ll recognize a few of these images on this post. Better yet, go and visit Girona and walk around the medieval areas and Cathedral of the city and you will really get a nice vibe of why this city was chosen as a new film location for the series. You can find out more details about exploring Girona and Costa Brava here for what to do and see in the region.

    I love Girona- I visited during TBEX 2015 and I cannot wait to go back with my husband. I’m a big Game of Thrones fan and just knowing that they are to film in Girona makes me very excited and look forward to season 6!

    Lovely pictures, Noel! Game of Thrones fan here so I was able to visit all their filming locations in Spain and Morocco!

    Even if those places don’t show up in Game of Thrones, they are definitely worth a visit! Just amazing how it looks 🙂

      This is going to be for the upcoming season six series so it will be coming out hopefully in the next few months so or?

    Very cool – I know Game of Thrones has a cult following, so I’ll have to try and play catch up on my TV before season 6 then!

    Embarrassing to say, but I have never watched Game of Thrones. Love the pictures, and history and I think I would really enjoy this place. Thanks for sharing these great pictures.

    It’s always fun to see where things are filmed at! We had fun seeing the Game of Throne sites in Dubrovnik. Show or no show though, the cloister and Girona look so lovely!

    It’s not hard to see why GoT chose Girona and Costa Brava for Season 6. It will be wonderful to see all these familiar places as part of the show. I thought it was fun to see Dubrovnik and other places in Croatia and Ireland, too. We were in CB when it was announced they’d landed the location and what a shot in the arm for the local economy. Your photos, as always, are spectacular.

    Great pics, really! Not a GOT fan but still willing to visit these places

    Noel, I love that shot inside the cathedral. That’s one thing about European cities. You are never at a loss for great photo ideas.

    Beautiful photos! I’ve always dreamt of going to Spain. Now I also have to start watching GoT.

    Beautiful photos, as always. I love Costa Brava, spent quite a while in the region in 2012, but I have never seen the Game of Thrones.

  14. Hung Thai January 25, 2016 at 8:27 pm #

    Beautiful pictures! I just love Europe with its rich history and incredible architecture like what you’ve shared. I’ve only seen season 1 of Game of Thrones – I should start watching the rest of the seasons to catch up haha.
