Game of Thrones filming locations in Girona, Spain


Game of Thrones is in its final season! Many GoT fans visit Girona, Spain which is where many GoT scenes for Braavos, Oldtown and King's Landing were filmed in season 6 of HBO's hit TV series.

Girona Cathedral became a star of season six of Game of Thrones as the set for Braavos, Oldtown and King's Landing. 

The impressive Girona Cathedral steps starred in a scene as the steps of the Great Sept of Baelor in the GoT city King's Landing. The scene features Game of Thrones stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) and Lena Headey (Cersei) among others.

Arya's begging scenes and a fight scene were shot at the rear of Girona Cathedral.  Girona became Braavos to Arya Stark, played by Maisie Williams and Arya's mentor Jaqen H'ghar played by Tom Wlaschiha.

Great Sept of Baelor in King's Landing - scene with Queen Margaery's planned walk of atonement. She stands on the steps of Girona Cathedral. When Tommen became loyal to the faith, the High Sparrow told him that his wife, Margaery Tyrell must perform a walk of atonement.

However, at the standoff on the steps of the Great Sept of Baelor (Girona cathedral) Mace Tyrell and Jaime Lannister arrive to stop the walk. This is the scene where Jaime rides his horse up the steps. The High Sparrow then announces that Margaery will be spared from her walk because her husband King Tommen agreed to a holy alliance between the crown and the faith. In the next scene King Tommen removes Ser Jamie of his position as Lord Commander of the Kingsguard
