7 Breathtaking Game of Thrones Locations You Can Expect in Season 7

Watch in awe as the White Walkers aim to conquer the magnificent Roman Ruins of Italica, Itzurun Beach and Trujillo Castle in Season 7 of Game of Thrones.

Just like Midas in Greek mythology, everything Game of Thrones (GoT) touches turns to gold. Every season brings about new filming locations for the adventures of Jon Snow (or is it Targaryen…), our favourite Khaleesi and the brilliant Tyrion Lannister. Soon after, these locations strike gold as thousands of GoT fans flock to them for a piece of the action, inevitably boosting tourism.

If you, just like us, were squealing with excitement at the latest Season 7 trailer, interrupt your countdown to the season premiere by reading up on the new filming locations! Winter is here and what better way to usher in the new season than with a glimpse of what’s going to be on TV? Here are seven new sights that you may find familiar after catching Season 7 of this global phenomenon.

1. Roman Ruins of Italica, Seville

The birthplace of Roman Emperors Trajan and Hadrian, it’s no wonder why the Italica was picked. The ruins ooze grandeur and magnificence, a destination truly fit for a king. Or in this case, a Khaleesi.

2. Castillo de Almodovar del Rio, Cordoba

The Almodovar Castle is rumoured to play host to the mysterious, never-before-seen Highgarden! The seat of House Tyrell and regional capital of the Reach will definitely make for some stunning battle scenes. Fingers crossed that we will get to see some Lannister soldiers breach this impregnable fortress.

3. Itzurun Beach, Zumaia

A beach?! GoT fans won’t be too quick to judge the simplicity of filming locations. Countless iconic scenes have been filmed on beaches and the Itzurun Beach is no exception. Especially since a certain dwarf has been spotted there.

4. Seville Royal Dockyards, Seville

The Seville Royal Dockyards are a Gothic, medieval shipyard that was constructed in the year 1252. Built entirely out of bricks, this hidden gem in the city of Seville was intended by the Spanish to guard the Straits of Gibraltar and protect Spanish ships in the Mediterranean! With such history, we can’t wait to see what this monument has in store for us in the context of GoT.

5. San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, Bermeo

With a backdrop like this, we can foresee some impeccable cinematography coming our way. The windswept isle of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, or Gaztelugatxe for short, is a photogenic hermitage that’s sure to leave you marvelling at its intricate architecture. Historically used to welcome sailors from faraway lands, perhaps this site will once again usher in a Queen and her Unsullied army.

6. Los Barruecos, Cáceres

The Los Barruecos National Monument holds a unique, undulating landscape littered with giant boulders and lakes. How perfect for an epic battle between two great armies! The next question beckons – which two armies will it be?

7. Trujillo Castle, Cáceres

Feast your eyes on the grandeur of Trujillo Castle! With such a majestic structure on show, you can definitely expect some important events to be taking place here. After all, the Kingslayer himself (along with his companion Bronn) was spotted admiring the city views from the castle.

Lannisters? Starks? Targaryens? Regardless of which house you support, we’re sure you can’t wait for Season 7 to air. We’re all stoked to see the fate of some of our favourite characters and the anticipation is killing us. But one thing’s for certain – and the filming locations prove just as much – winter is finally here.
