‘Game of Thrones', the star of Girona's new cinematic tours
09/08/16 | Prompted by the popularity it has gained due to the latest season of the series, the city is launching new guided tours of filming locations, starting on 11 August
From 11 August Girona is presenting a new way to discover the city's cinematic side. The guided tours planned for this summer are designed to show visitors the locations in Girona that have appeared in different films and television series, with the series Game of Thrones playing a leading role. The three tours, which include entrance to the Girona Plató exhibition at Casa Pastors, are as follows:
1. Lights, camera, action Girona. A guided tour around the Historic Quarter to learn about the most important cinema productions that have been filmed in the city during its long cinematic history which dates back to 1912, and which has brought Girona international recognition. This tour in Catalan is designed for people of all ages. It lasts an hour and a half and will be conducted on Thursdays at 8.30 pm. Tickets cost €12 per person.
2. Game of Girona locations. Girona can be recognised in 30 of the 500 minutes of the latest season of Game of Thrones. This tour in Catalan lasts an hour and a half and is scheduled to take place on Tuesdays at 8.30 pm. Tickets cost €10 per person.
3. Game of Girona experience. Girona is the star of the sixth season, and the city is being seen all over the world (more than 20 million viewers in the USA alone, and shown in 173 countries). The aim of this tour is to reveal how and where it all started, the special features, the settings... and to discuss, enjoy and experience Game of Thrones for three full hours. The tours will be in Catalan (and in Spanish, French and English on request). In order to get the most out of this tour, visitors should ideally have seen the sixth season. This tour will be given on Saturdays at 7 pm, and tickets cost €30 per person.
This is not the first cinematic product offered by the city of Girona, as its Cinema Museum has already run several activities and projects related to the world of film. This institution is among the top cinema museums in Europe, and its fascinating collection of cinema equipment invites visitors to trace the history of the cinema industry from its origins until the present day.
