SPAIN: OSUNA ~ Plaza de Toros (Game of Thrones Film Location)
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.
Walking around the exterior, trying to find the entrance
Intricate iron work
Roaming around the halls at the Plaza de Toros, Osuna
Patio de Caballos (stables)
Spots for bull shoes
Long empty water troughs....
Time to check out the fighting pit (bullring)
Half expected to see these peeps waiting for my grand entrance (Freeze frame from HBO's Game of Thrones Season 5)

Standing in the centre, imagining the stands all full of people
Funny to see numbered seating on these old stone seats

Old ads for the Plaza de Toros
Another oldie, I wonder how much admission was then? At 2 euros today, and completely empty - it was totally worth it
