Our point of entry to Barcelona is the historical district. We will see one of the most beautiful examples of the Catalan Gothic style  with the imposing Santa Maria del Mar church. From there we will head towards the Gothic quarter where we will see the Cathedral,  the Palau de la Generalitat, the Town Hall, the small streets that lead to the Plaza Real. La Rambla, an area joining the statue of Columbus  with the Plaza Catalunya, passing through the Boqueria Market.  Break for lunch (not included) We resume our visit to Barcelona’s Modernist expression on its most emblematic street, the Paseo de Gracia. This and other  adjacent and parallel streets comprise numerous private residences designed by Domenech and Gaudi, as well as by other architects  from Catalonia’s most powerful bourgeois period. One prominent block is the Manzana de la Discordia where Gaudi’s Casa Batllo,  Domenech’s Casa Lleo, Morera and Puig  Cadafalch’s Casa Amatller stand in rivalry with each other. These artists also created the masterpiece La Pedrera, the Montaner i Simon Publishing House, and the Casa de les Punxes on  Diagonal street, respectively. The industrial Guell family commissioned many works from Gaudi’s of which we will see the Guell Park. The Avenida Diagonal will take us to the great Modernist artist Antonio Gaud’s masterful, albeit unfinished work, the Sagrada Familia.

DAY 4, BARCELONA – Peniscola – Valencia


Travel to Peniscola, tour 2 hours  Although it is not known which scenarios have been chosen, it seems the Castle Castillo de Papa Luna from  13th and 14th Centuries, could represent the Principality of Dorne, as occurred with the Real Alcazar of Seville.  The castle is located on the highest point of the city. It was built by the Knights Templar on the remains of an old Moorish citadel.  It was built with walls of carved stone. Most of the rooms had barrel vaults. It is a sober and solid construction. It was the residence of Benedict XIII, who turned it into a palace and papal library when he moved to Peniscola in 1411.

Continue to Valencia for overnight.

Tour Valencia for 3 hours.

We will have the opportunity to discover Valencia. Our visit will start in the heart of the city where we can see a portion of the ancient  Roman walls adjacent to Arab additions and the medieval Christian gates. Currently it is the Gothic Cathedral with its Miquelet tower that takes center stage. The Arab-designed narrow streets reveal a city  once encircled by rivers. A stroll through the side streets takes us to shopping centers, the Plaza Redonda, the Market, and finally,  the great symbol of Valencian power, the Silk Exchange from the 15th century. Since the age of the Caliphs, the Tribunal of Water for the Gardens of Valencia has gathered at one of the cathedral portals to  render judgment in medieval and effective manner over abuses of their most precious commodity: water.

DAY 6, Granada


Visit Granada (2,5 hrs):

We begin our journey in La Alhambra, masterful work of the Nazrids, the last dynasty of the Hispanic Muslims.  In its rooms, patios and gardens, we understand the fascination that water and vegetation have wielded over the Islamic culture,  and how we are still today seduced by their legendary romantic tales. We will attempt to appreciate, despite the obvious contrasts,  the beauty of the Palace of Emperor Carlos V.

A stroll through the Albaicin district reveals the well known Arab facet of the Andalusian culture, prior to discovering the mark  left on Granada by a Christian Spain: the Renaissance Cathedral with the Royal Chapel and the tombstones of the Catholic Kings.   Finally, we will wander through the old district, the lively Plaza Bib-Rambla and the narrow streets that surround it.

DAY 7, Granada – Cordoba


Travel to Cordoba

Visit Cordoba (2.5 hours)   The Roman Bridge of Cordoba will serve in the 5th Season to recreate the entrance to the City of Volantis.

Cordoba was likely the most powerful city in Al-Andalus, and was so in its most spectacular phase. The great mosque bears  witness to this period, very well preserved despite, or perhaps because of, its conversion to a cathedral.  A worship center for the third religion is not lacking; a Jewish synagogue surrounded by its aljama or Jewish Quarter and the  remembrance of the great rabbinic thinkers.  We finish the day with a stroll through the streets of the old district and its charming patios.

Overnight in Cordoba  Hospes Palacio Del Bailio or similar

Visit Osuna (2,5 hours)

Osuna, whose Bullfightarena from the beginning of the 20th Century served as one of the most important scenes of the  Season with an impressive Combat of Gladiatiors in Meereen presided by Daenerys, that can be seen in the 9th Episode  of the 5th Season.

Continue to Sevilla

Overnight in Sevilla 5* Hotel Palacio Villapanes or similar

DAY 9, Sevilla


Visit Sevilla (3 hours)

Of the three capitals that the Muslims had in Andalusia, it was Seville that the Christian kings chose for themselves.

King Pedro I had the Royal Palaces built, one of the most prominent works of Mudejar style art.   This Palace “Real Alcazar de Sevilla” recreates Dorne in the 5th Season, with popular characters such as Nikolaj Coster  Waldau and Jerome Flynn. Only two sequences where filmed in the interior of the Alcazar, in the Room “Salon de Embajadores” but also the Gardens, fountains and ponds of the Monument represent other areas of the Kingdom of Dorne. We will continue visiting other monuments of the city. Here too the imposing Gothic Cathedral occupies the grounds of the mosque, leaving only the Patio de los Naranjos and the ancient minaret, the Giralda bell tower from which one can enjoy a panoramic view of all Seville. A stroll through the picturesque quarters such as Santa Cruz, beckon us to savor a special selection of tapas. Overnight in Sevilla 5* Hotel Palacio Villapanes or similar
