LA ALCAZABA: Setting the mood for Series Six

LA ALCAZABA will relocate – but only for the duration of the next Game of Thrones series – to Westeros.
Almeria City’s Moorish citadel is to be one of the locations for the sixth season, much of which will be shot in Andalucia.
According to the local Spanish media, the producers have also shown “enormous interest” in the Mesa Roldan lighthouse in Carboneras and the Tabernas desert as well as El Chorrilla de Sierra Alhamilla in Pechina and beaches inside the Cabo de Gata-Nijar national park.
Regional president Susana Diaz and Rosa Aguilar who heads the Junta’s Culture department recently met executives from Fresco Film, the production company responsible for Game of Thrones in Spain.
“The return of Game of Thrones is good news for Almeria and, by extension, for all of Andalucia,” Diaz said.
Almeria has always been a reference point for international filmmakers, the president continued: “We must all work together to ensure that it continues to be one.”
Filmmaking creates economic profits and is an important source of international promotion,” she said.
