Santa Barbara castle in Alicante will host an exhibition that will delight fans of the Game of Thrones series and the original literary saga of George R. R. Martin. "The Universe of A Song of Ice and Fire" exhibition is being held from July 14 until October 29
The Game of Thrones exhibition in Alicante, of unpublished content, will showcase various objects linked to both the series and novels, including characters' costumes and the original drawings by Corominas, who illustrated the book covers in the Spanish editions.
Alicante came close to starring in the Game of Thrones series as HBO officials contacted the Spain Film Commission in search of locations to shoot the fifth series. They visited the castles of Alicante, Biar and Sax but alas it was not to be.
For the sixth series, scenes from the Game of Thrones were filmed in Peñíscola in the Comunidad Valenciana.
