Game of Thrones season 5. HBO is looking for locations in the South of Spain to shoot the fifth season of Game of Thrones.
The U.S. ambassador in Madrid, James Costos, told Spanish Cadena Ser that HBO is considering filming in Spain and negotiations with the Andalusia Film Commission are firm. Because there are wonderful locations in Andalusia and if everything goes well, they will film the next season in Spain.
Then, Game of Thrones season 5 will add a ‘Seven’ location to the many that have the series: Northern Ireland, Croatia, Iceland, Morocco, Malta and the United States.
Traveling the world:
They filmed a lot in Northern Ireland during the first two seasons of Game of Thrones to recreate the North. Now, although they are still filming there, Northern Ireland has lost importance.
The locations of the Wall and Beyond the Wall are shot in the cold Iceland.
Morocco has become the usual scenario of Daenerys now that she is freeing slaves and governing cities like Meeren or Astapor.
King’s Landing has been filmed in Croatia, in the city of Dubrovnik, and in Malta.
For season 5, one of the new scenarios will be Dorne, southern region of the West whose characteristics fit with those of Andalusia, so it would not be surprising that Game of Thrones season 5 finishes in Spain.
**Remember that Dorne is the hottest region of Westeros. Dorne is rocky, mountainous, arid, and features the only desert on the continent. However, its rivers provide some fertile lands and even during a long summer there is enough rain and other supplies of water to keep Dorne habitable.
Dornishmen have a reputation for sexual licentiousness, and they provide many exotic products which are uncommon in the rest of the Seven Kingdoms, in particular, citrus fruits and wine.
