As we inch closer and closer to the final season of Game of Thrones, there is so much fan theory, information, speculation behind the scenes and gambles as to who will sit on the Iron Throne that I just had to share this one! Most of the scenery from GOT is in various locations around the world. Some have actual castles on them! Spain, which I have blogged about before as a destination that I wish to travel to, hosted many of the memorable scenes from this soon to be HBO classic! I know that I am going to add the books to my bookshelf and grab my DVD copies as soon as they make he Anthology of it! Kinda like I did the Sopranos and Sex in the City. So, let’s look at season seven and one of my favorite scenes!
That thrilling season seven finale? The tense meeting with Cersei, where a white walker was released, took place inside the amphitheatre at Italica, an ancient Roman city and birthplace of emperors Trajan and Hadrian, just outside Seville. It is tipped to return in season eight.
Seville’s Royal Dockyards have also made an appearance in Game of Thrones, as has its Alcazar, which was the perfect substitute for Sunspear, the capital of Dorne, and its Water Gardens.
Everyone should visit Seville, one of the world’s most seductive cities. “History oozes through its very pores, with ancient Moorish walls, Roman ruins and Baroque churches at every turn,” says our expert Fiona Flores-Watson.
