We have to admit, we’re avid followers of “Game of Thrones”. The story is well told, full of fantasy and interpersonal intrigues; it’s hooked millions of viewers worldwide.
But it also, and this is a part we really like, explains how the world of the Middle Ages worked, what the relationships between emperors, monarchs, nobles, and serfs were like, with their alliances with the former and vassalage with the latter, as the vast majority of people were subject to the whims of the higher-ups, and suffered the consequences of their intrigues. So, it’s entertaining and informative, which we really like.
As all our readers will know, some of the scenes of this last season of “Game of Thrones” are being filmed on the Basque coast. We, and all the other media, have been following and reporting on the filming closely.
We imagine the HBO, the network producing the show, does not appreciate the images that have been caught and broadcast around the world; on the other hand, it’s great publicity for the show, and keeps interest up.
This extraordinary publicity also spreads the word of Basque tourism to a worldwide audience. We love the fact that some of the key scenes from last year were filmed in the southern edge of the Basque Country, in the Bardenas Reales, and now some key scenes of the final season are being filmed on the Basque Coast.
We don’t doubt that in the next few years, a good number of tourists will come here to visit the filming locations. They’ll be warmly welcomed.
The amount of information that we’ve found about this has overwhelmed us. So, we decided to collect a wide range of sources and put them in our scoop.it service, so that enthusiasts can check it all out. Here are some of the most interesting examples:
