The Reales Alcázares of Seville and the ruins of Itálica de Saltinponce were two of the film sets chosen by the producers of Games of Thrones.

Filming locations in Seville, Osuna and Córdoba

Seville and its surroundings were one of the numerous enclaves chosen by the producer of the HBO series to shoot the sequences of the famous series Game of Throne. For the fifth season of the series Game of Throne , Spain and especially Andalusia in general had captivated the directors and the head of the exteriors who recognized that Osuna, Córdoba, Granada and Seville could form part of the chosen scenario, where protagonists such as Lord Tyron, Queen Khaleesi and Jaime Lannister would be seen in the flesh to the great delight of fans and the local economy.

Seville Election

The choice of Seville was a perfect bet because the lands created from the imagination of George RR Martin (the author of the saga that inspired the series) are very close to the Andalusian regions and correspond perfectly to the landscapes described in the books. .

The Alcázar, a great witness to the shooting

Seville's most popular royal palace was THE Favorite Place for American production. The Gardens of the Keep represented the Gardens of Dorne , the seat of Doran Martell's house in Suzerain, qu'interprète Alexander Siddig. The enclosure of the great walls provided the perfect setting for the Land of Dorne, one of the kingdoms imagined by George RR Martin in his Song of Ice and Fire series.

The Roman city of Italica in Santiponce

The Roman ruins of Itálica (remains found in Santiponce, about 15 minutes from Seville) were also selected by the Game of Thrones film crews. The ruins of Santiponce are highly appreciated by the Iron Throne producers, as the large dimensions of the Roman amphitheater provide a comfortable environment for setting up the sets, equipment and allowing scenes to be filmed as desired. The "Wolf Unit", also responsible shooting in Seville, he filmed the Roman amphitheater to turn it into the ruins of Fossedragon, a great place where the Targaryans locked up their dragons and a decisive place for the next events of the series and the cult of the series.

Season 7 and the impressive Castle of Almodóvar del Río

It is the first time that this beautiful and well-preserved castle appears in the series and is transformed into a Haut-Jardin castle. The fertile lands of the Guadalquivir Valley and the Almodóvar Castle were the ideal place to symbolize the Kingdom of the Game of Throne.
