Braavos Theatre

TV show Game of Thrones (2011)
It is at the beginning of the fifth season that Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) arrives in Braavos. She discovers the city and attends a parody of her father's execution on the stage of a small theater. Theater reconstituted by the production in the plaça dels Jurats in Girona, Spain.

Arya Stark (Maisie Williams)

Girona has become one of the most sought-after cities for the production of Game of Thrones. Almost all of Arya Stark’s (Maisie Williams) scenes in Braavos were filmed there. A remarkably well-preserved historical city that provides a perfect backdrop for a fictional city whose architecture evokes Spanish influences.

Game of Thrones music box

“Tin-tin, tin-tin-tin, tin…” Listen again to Ramin Djawadi’s cult Game of Thrones theme music with this beautiful music box adorned with beautiful engraving reminiscent of the series.

The scenes of the theater in the Plaça dels Jurats required a special logistics. The site was initially closed to the public. The building with two arcades facing the wall houses a small theater built from scratch. It is here that Arya Stark watches the reenactment of her father’s execution and begins her strange journey to Braavos with the Faceless.

As usual, the site also undergoes some changes in post-production. Bordered by more modern buildings, the square is numerically isolated and then placed in the context of the series. Many extras were also hired by HBO to make up the hilarious audience that Arya Stark blends into to watch the play.


Maisie Williams received four awards for her performance in Game of Thrones.

Plaça dels Jurats

Located halfway to the Arab baths of Monestir de Sant Pere de Galligants, the plaça dels Jurats is topped by high walls.

Central point of the old city, not far from the Jewish quarter, this picturesque place sometimes hosts demonstrations and other concerts. It is distinguished by the presence of an old building with two arcades and three small balconies. A building transformed into a theater stage for the filming of the Game of Thrones series.
