We have some very specific new information about the Game of Thrones filming sites in Girona, Spain, thanks to Aragirona.cat. The city is expected to serve as multiple locations for Westeros and beyond in season 6. We had gotten an overview of the Girona sites a few days ago when a pamphlet was released by the city of Girona, but the city has now shared a great deal more info, in an effort to make the process painless for their resident and merchants.
The mayor of Girona, Carles Puigdemont, met with Girona City Council representatives and Old Town merchants this week. The local government and representatives from Game of Thrones are keeping business owners aware of which streets in the area will be affected by Game of Thrones shooting. More meetings are planned, in order to keep the merchants aware of the filming activity and how it may interrupt the flow of traffic.
In the meeting, people were informed which public areas, streets and plazas would be affected on which dates. These days may include preparation time, testing, shooting and breaking down of the sets.
The areas and when Game of Thrones production will be visiting them:
-Bisbe Cartañà: From August 30th to September 7th.
– Pujada de Sant Martí: From August 28th to September 1st will be partly affected; For September 2nd and September 6th, completely affected.
– Carrer de la Claveria: From August 30th to September 7th
– Carrer de l’Escola Pia: From September 3rd to Sept 7th.
– Carrer de Sant Llorenç: From September 1 through Sept. 7th
– Carrer de Ferran el Catòlic: From August 24th to September 16th
– Plaça dels Jurats: From August 27th to September 14th
– The stairs of the Girona Cathedral: From September 11th to the 16th
– Carrer dels Manaies: September 7th to 16th
– Pujada de Sant Feliu: From September 2nd to 4th and then from Sept. 13th to the 16th
– Plaça de l’Oli: September 4th and 5th (reserved for production, unclear if it’s for filming)
Aragirona noted some parking restrictions as well, since Game of Thrones would affect the availability and require some space. Up-to-date filming information will be posted on the Girona municipal website and posted on the town’s social networks for citizens who are concerned about the filming activity, in addition to the mailers sent to locals’ addresses.
The list is more specific than the pamphlet map, and it has the dates, which are very useful for anyone in the area who wants to know when it’s a good idea to take a peek. But Girona will be quite closed off, so it may be tough for any lookie-loos!
