We have some more Season 7 news for you today in the form of a new filming location in Spain thanks to El Correo! Muriola Beach in Barrika will host the cast and crew of Game of Thrones and set the stage for the newest season.

We previously reported several new filming locations along the Basque coast in Spain. The crew will be moving to the beaches sometime in October, says El Correo.

Town Mayor Robert Muñoz is also being kept in the dark saying the filming is “surrounded by mystery” though he is beyond ecstatic the town will get a chance to shine though such an epic series.

As previously announced, filming will take place October 26th on Itzurun Beach in Zumaia and Modexpor International has stated that extras casting begin around October 5th. We can expect the filming at Muriola to take place shortly after.

It looks like there will be plenty of opportunities for those in the area to get involved so head on over to El Correo for more!

Special thanks to WoTW reader H. Stark for the tip! 

What do you think the beaches will be used for? Let us know below!

    1. Muriola looks like the Iron islands, or could pass as Dragonstone or maybe even the stepstones. Really can’t see this as the Dornish coast, although they used Portstewart in S5 (unsuccessfully, I might add).

    2. My first thought was that the top pic looked very much like the beach on Dragonstone where Davos, Matthos and Salladhor Saan had a scene back in season 2, but I think equally it could pass for somewhere in the Stormlands. The second pic, I think, makes me think of the Iron Islands.

    3. Looks like Dragonstone from the prior seasons, Dany’s Landing at Westeros? I am guessing they will give us the Targaryen Dragonstone landing as it is fitting since it is the ancestral landing and marks the 1st and last time she was in Westeros. It is also where Aegon lands in ADWD. This also lets me know she must have handled Euron whilst crossing the Narrow Sea. I can’t imagine a decent Iron Born epic battle on land. It would make for a great episode 6 (being episode 9 now). Favorite characters must die during the sea voyage, everyone can’t make it, my guess, Grey Worm or Missandei (leaning towards Grey Worm as Dany will still need her herald) and Asha.

    4. Seeing all these beaches makes me wish they would come to shoot in Greece too 🙁 Highly unlikely for S8 but a woman can dream.

    6. Sou,

      Hahah αυτό ξαναπες το 🙁 I read somewhere some time ago that they wanted to shoot the Eyrie scenes from S1 at Meteora and Dorne at Ikaria but there were too many bureaucracy and high tax level problems. Damnit the Greek government disappoints me again xD

    7. Flayed Potatoes,

      It would be strange if Dany would land in Dorne, since there already were Martell and Tyrell ships in her navy ;o Why would the Tyrells and “Martells” go through all the trouble to meet with Dany on the sea if they were going to land on Dorne anyways, where they already were in S6E10 ?? I dunno (:

    8. It’s a bit silly, but the filming period really gets me excited for any and all bits of info. It’s probably the most exciting time to be a fan, other than when the show is on, of course. The longest and hardest part is when filming is done, and the show goes into post, and there are no trailers or any kind of news, and you’re just left checking the site, day after day for new click bait. I really hope we get some good spoilers to fuel the imagination until, sigh, next summer 🙁

    9. Rhaenys Stark,

      Well, go see the new Bourne movie. Supposedly in Athens, filmed…where?
      Still, I met some Koreans the other day and they were telling me about this big korean production, “Descendants of the sun”, a massive hit everywhere in eastern Asia, and guess, it was filmed in Zakynthos, Arahova and can’ t remember where else. At least someone’s not afraid to deal with Greece!

      That is my question too. I think Tyrells/Martells met Dany as she sailed past Dorne. I couldn’t see any land on the horizon, but there might not be as this is Westeros, not a New York city skyline.

      I don’t think she ultimately needed their ships to transport her troops, as she took over the masters ships, and then Theon and Yara showed up with their ships also.

      There are all sorts of other clues in that clip of her armada.

    11. It looks like Dragonstone to me also. I don’t think Tyrion will have Dany attack Kings Landing from the sea. Cersei would do the same thing he did to Stannis and burn the ships with wildfire. I think the best option is either a combined attack first from air to distract and then attack by land and sea. They would also have to somehow disable the wildfire below Kings Landing. Maybe that’s the suspicious figure mentioned in that casting call for a guard? Them trying to secure the wildfire?

      Nope it’s gendry!

      Precisely. Don’t know why everyone is assuming that everything is all about Dany. We need our favorite rower back.
