TV fantasy series Game of Thrones has announced it will film scenes in the Alcazar of Sevilla, the part-time home of the royal family.
The news comes as producers confirmed rumours that Spain will be a set location for the upcoming fifth series.
The stunning Moorish castle will become the Water Gardens of Dorne, the home of House Martell.
The Alcazar is the oldest palace in Europe to still serve as a home for the royal family, and is renowned for its beautiful and elegant courtyard and gardens.
Production on the fifth series is due to begin this summer, with another sixth series also planned.
Various other Andalucian locations will make up the rest of the Kingdom of Dorne, as Spain becomes the seventh country – equivalent to the second country – used on the show.
The capital city of the fictional world of Westeros, King’s Landing, is located in Dubrovnik, in South Croatia, while the wintery scenes north of ‘the wall’ are filmed in Iceland.
Both Morocco and Malta have also been used in the show, largely for the slaver’s bay cities of Essos, and the USA features as well.
Game of Thrones is based on George R.R. Martin’s novels.
