In the Arab baths of Girona

Game of Thrones has returned the Girona Arab Baths to their original function. In fact, it has been a long time since Arab baths were used for ablutions. Today they are open to visitors and are part of the historical and cultural heritage of the city. The Game of Thrones set designers have exploited the place by taking it back several centuries to when the inhabitants came to wash and relax in the hot steam baths. The central room, recognizable thanks to its arches and its basin, remains identifiable on the screen, despite the darkness. A scene that has helped to amplify the popularity of this emblematic place of the Catalan city.

Arya, as a threat of divorce

Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), a fan-favorite character in the series, has had a most unexpected fate in Game of Thrones. It is also the favorite of Parris Martin, the wife of the writer George R. R. Martin. The latter having warned her husband that if it came to his mind to kill Arya, as he did with so many other characters, she would leave him without hesitation. A warning also concerning Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner). The fact is that if Arya Stark remains alive in the series, her fate is not yet sealed in the books, since the author has not yet finished writing them.

Built at the end of the 12th century, these Arab baths are among the most popular tourist attractions in Girona.

Built on the model of medieval Islamic baths, these baths consist of five rooms, namely the changing rooms, the cold room, the warm room, the hot room and the oven in which the boilers were placed. Closed during the 15th century, they were later made available to the Capuchin convent and used as kitchens. They have belonged to the city since 1928 and are open for visits. Their popularity has grown significantly since HBO shot a scene from Game of Thrones there.
