Girona – Game of Thrones City
The tour will start by bus from Barcelona to Girona, monumental city with one of the best preserved Jewish quarters of Europe and scenario of the famous show “Game of Thrones” in its sixth season.
The origins of this city dates from the Iberian settlements despite the fact that its first urban foundation dates back to Roman times. It only remains part of the walls of this era. It had an important role in the Carolingian period because this was the frontier zone between Islam and the Carolingian Empire. During the 13th Century, the Jewish community of Girona experienced its peak period, the reason why it has one of the most important Jewish quarters of Europe.
During the visit, you will take a tour through some of the interest points of the historic centre, and at the end of the guided part, you will have free time to see the city on your own.
Some parts of the historical centre of Girona were chosen to be the scenario for the HBO’s famous show. Especifically, Girona recreate the locations of Braavos, King’s Landing and the Antigua’s Library.
Some scenes were recorded in the narrow streets of the Jewish quarter, the Arabic baths and in the rear part of the cathedral’s headboard, with Arya as the main character. The stairs leading to the cathedral became the stairway to the Baelor’s Septum in King’s Landing, where some scenes of great importance took place as the Walk of Shame of Queen Margaery and the appearance on horse of Jaime Lannister. Finally, in the last episode of the season, we see the church Sant Pere de Galligants turning into the Antigua’s Library.
