Girona is one of the cities that appears the most during the sixth season of Game of Thrones since it is in this city where it was located in the imaginary city of Braavos. Only in the first chapter can we see how Arya Stark, one of the great protagonists of the series, appears in the streets of Girona. 

Throughout the season and the different chapters, we can observe how different scenarios of this imaginary city are really based on the city of Girona. Specifically, you can see places in the old part of the city such as the Arab Baths and the Pujada de Sant Domènech.

The first place could not be other than the Girona Cathedral. This is possibly one of the most significant scenes since the stairs of the Girona Cathedral are undoubtedly one of the most emblematic places in the city. 

Girona Cathedral was considered to be the best location to record the Great Sept of Baelor scenes. If you have seen the series and are a big fan, you will surely remember how Queen Margaery was about to start the walk of atonement and how Jaime Lannister climbed the emblematic stairs with his horse.

As mentioned above, the streets of Girona became the perfect setting to reflect the scenes of the imaginary city of Braavos. Specifically, the first minutes of the sixth season takes place in Carrer de Bisbe Josep Cartanyà, an easily recognizable street since the cathedral is visible at the bottom of it.

Another of the most significant places that are undoubtedly part of the Games of Thrones filming locations in Girona is the well-known Plaza del Jurats. This square is an open space in medieval style and therefore, it became the perfect place for a performance of a play about the Lannisters. 

In addition, the bridge at the exit of this same square also appears through which Ary Stark is fleeing.  

 

Pujada de Sant Domènech

The Pujada de Sant Domènec has possibly become one of the most iconic settings of all those chosen to shoot Games of Thrones in Girona. The fight between Arya and the Waif through the streets of Girona takes place in different streets of the city and is the one which stands out above all the Pujada de Sant Domènech. 

It is considered to be one of the most famous streets for its particular stairs and above all, for the curious door that is found at the end of the stairs.
