SPAIN: OSUNA ~ Plaza de Toros (Game of Thrones Film Location)

February 11, 2017  •  Leave a Comment


On the drive to Sevilla, I've already made a pit-stop in Antequera, and now I'm at my second pit-stop, Osuna. Another place in Spain that quite honestly, I'd never heard of before. 

Googling the city for what to see here, I'm pleasantly surprised that Osuna's Plaza de Toros is a Game of Thrones filming location.

 


PLAZA DE TOROS ~ OSUNA


Game of Thrones fans know the place well. In season 5, episodes 9 and 10, an epic battle is fought here and Daenerys Targaryen is rescued by her fire-breathing dragons from the Great Pit of Daznak... which is actually the Plaza de Toros in Osuna. Not a fan of bull-fighting, but I wanted to see the place where such a legendary battle took place.

Yes, I'm aware that Game of Thrones is completely fictional.

Only a 2 EUR entrance fee, I had the entire "pit" to myself (the child stayed in the car to sleep since we've been on the road since 6 am) where I was free to roam around and pretend I was in Meereen.
