The Alcázar Palace as the Water Gardens of Dorne

No location in Seville contributed more screen time than the Royal Alcázar Palace. The sprawling 14th century palace, renowned as one of Europe’s most beautiful, provided exteriors and interiors spanning numerous scenes throughout the series.

Most prominently, the beautiful and famous palace gardens stood in for the Water Gardens of Dorne, home to House Martell. The geometrically lined ponds, multiple fountains, and neatly clipped hedgerows hosted everything filmed in Dorne and was the perfect fit to match the peaceful descriptions of Dorne in the books.

Meanwhile, the heavily decorated Alcázar palace rooms hosted royal audiences, strategy sessions, and relationship dramas between various characters, in particular the Lannisters and their ongoing fued with the Tyrells.

If you’re a fan of the show or just love historical places, visiting the Alcázar is a great option. You’d get to see where some iconic scenes were filmed and also learn about Spanish history.

Plaza de España as the City of Meereen

The Plaza de España in Seville, Spain, was used to represent some parts of the city of Meereen. Meereen is one of the cities in Slaver’s Bay that Daenerys Targaryen conquers to free the slaves.

In real life, the Plaza de España is a big, semi-circular building with a canal in front of it. It was built for an expo in 1929 and is known for its beautiful tiles and bridges. The place has a mix of Renaissance and Moorish styles, making it look both grand and exotic.

The location was a good fit for Meereen because it has that grand, ancient city vibe that you see in the show. It’s another cool spot to visit, especially if you want to feel like you’re stepping into the world of “Game of Thrones” while also taking in some Spanish culture.

Italica Ruins as Dragonpit Entrance

A mere 30 minutes outside Seville, the ancient Roman town of Italica, with its amphitheaters and mosaic floors, proved the ideal backdrop for King’s Landings’ Dragonpit entrance. The stones of this ruined city convincingly resembled the scorched remnants of the towering Dragonpit itself.

CGI then transformed Italica into the fully formed arena where Daenerys once housed her now massive dragons. The striking site continues to attract Game of Thrones fans eager to walk in the footsteps of Khaleesi.

Tourists can visit the italica via a guided tour from Seville (coach provided) or take public transport to reach the historic site.

A full guide on the Italica site can be found here.

Castillo de Almodóvar del Río for Highgarden Castle

Perched on a hilltop overlooking the Guadalquivir River, this medieval stone fortress acted as stand-in for the exteriors of Highgarden Castle, ancestral home of House Tyrell.

The grand arched entryways and crenelated parapets of Castillo de Almodóvar del Río captured Highgarden’s epic scale and strategic position. CGI embellishments completed the transformation into the formidable seat of House Tyrell.

Although a little outside Seville, you can easily make it a day trip (less than an hour away). If you visit, you can take tours that show you around and even point out where specific scenes were shot.

Barrio de Santa Cruz for Marketplaces and Streets of King’s Landing

Seville’s scenic historic Jewish Quarter, known for its maze of narrow cobblestone alleys, old fashioned balconies, and lively plazas, portrayed numerous outdoor scenes around King’s Landing.

Barrio de Santa Cruz area is one of Seville’s oldest neighbourhoods. It’s got narrow streets, small squares, and old buildings, making it look like something straight out of a medieval setting. It’s really charming and has that old-world vibe.

When you walk through the area, it’s easy to see why it was chosen for King’s Landing. It feels historic but also lively, just like you’d expect the capital city in the show to be.
