One of the most opulent settings in the show, the palace of Dorne seen in series five is filmed at Seville’s stunning royal palace. Complete with its lush gardens, elaborately tiled courtyards and gilded ceilings, the palace was originally founded in the 10th century, making the moorish fortress the oldest European palace still to be used today.
