Join up with your guide near the Plaza Virgen de los Reyes in Seville. Take in the ornate Archbishop’s Palace, one of the square’s showpiece buildings, and then start out on your 2-hour Game of Thrones exploration — a unique tour that you won’t find anywhere else.
As you walk and talk, discover why Seville made the ideal backdrop for the cult HBO TV series. Hear about the drama’s roots in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire stories that tell the sagas of noble families at war in the mythical land of Westeros.
Pass Seville Cathedral and its majestic Giralda bell tower, and then go inside the UNESCO-protected Alcázar of Seville, the 10th-century palace that was used as the Water Gardens of Dorne, the home of House Martell, in the fifth series of Game of Thrones. This glorious palace stands in pool- and fountain-dotted garden that seemed to perfectly represent the fictional Water Gardens.
Wander around the tile-coated rooms, and learn how they were adapted to serve as the home of Prince Oberyn Martell, the late ruler of the kingdom of Dorne. Hear intriguing behind-the-scenes snippets about the filming and stars of the 2014 series, and then meander around the gardens. See the tinkling fountains and walkways roamed by Doran Martell, and learn how some of the pools were tinted a vivid turquoise for the scenes.
After around two hours exploring, your tour ends at the start point.
Upgrade with Visit to Osuna and Lunch: (10 hours)
Keen to continue your Game of Thrones explorations? If so, upgrade to add a visit to Osuna after your Seville walking tour. Hop inside an air-conditioned car or minivan and drive to nearby Osuna, a pretty hilltop town that’s home to several filming locations used in the 2014 series.
When you arrive, set off to see some of the sites. View the historical bullring where the scenes and battles of Danzak’s Pit were shot, and tick through other locations such as the church, university and a local quarry.
Cap your sightseeing with a memorable Game of Thrones–inspired tapas lunch at a local restaurant. Savor tasty tidbits named after favorite characters and pair them with drinks (own expense). Your tour then concludes in Seville.
