How Spain became Dorne in Game of Thrones

Series six saw Spanish locations take a prominent role, with Bardenas Reales in Navarre, Castell de Santa Florentina in the town of Canet de Mar, Castle of Zafra, found on a sandstone outcrop in the Spanish province of Guadalajara, all making debut appearances.

However, Spain has already featured in previous seasons. It fills in for warmer climes of Dorne, the most southerly of the seven kingdoms of Westeros, and the lands of Essos, across the Narrow Sea. The bullring of the Andalusian town of Osuna becomes the fighting pits of Meereen, the Alcazar of Seville is the perfect substitute for Sunspear, the capital of Dorne, and its Water Gardens, while Cordoba’s Roman Bridge becomes the Long Bridge of Volantis.

While we have your attention, we would like to remind you of our Emergency Ukraine Appeal

While BILLIONS of Dollars pours into western Ukraine, the beleaguered people in the east have been forgotten and abandoned to starve or freeze to death. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN! In conjunction with our brethren on the ground in the area I am asking you to dig deep and send your immediate financial support (as best you can) to our EMERGENCY UKRAINE WAR APPEAL!
