Visit Girona now and feel like you were one of the stars of ‘Game of Thrones’ acting the scenes of the sixth edition of the American series. You will discover the key locations that will appear this season.
For fourteen days the cameras, lights and actors revolutionized this quiet city. Moments that occurred in past centuries were revived in its cobbled streets, a journey back in time where the frenetic atmosphere of the medieval markets and the fighting between noble knights were re-enacted. More than 800 actors and extras were filmed during those days.
During the filming, Girona became the Seven Kingdoms, practically closed to the outside world, to the surprise of the neighbours who live in the medieval city. They could come across the most famous new faces of Hollywood such Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark; Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, in the role of Jaime Lannister; Dean-Charles Chapman, the king Tommen, and others: Natalie Dormer (Margaery), Diana Rigg (Olenna), Finn Jones (Loras), Roger Ashton-Griffiths (Olenna), Jonathan Pryce (High Sparrow), Hannah Murray (Gilly), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly) and the producers David Benioff y D.B. Weiss.

In fact, they can face a fine of $150,000 for disclosing confidential information. Therefore, everything around this new season is a secret that you have to discover…
