Pile Gate is used as the main entry point to the old town of Dubrovnik, the complex has several doors, and Fort Bokar provided defences centuries ago. In the present day, the gates remain open to the general public. For Game of Thrones followers, Pile Gate is more recognisable as the spot which represented the entrance to King’s Landing.
Viewers will recall seeing Pile Gate as the King’s Landing Entrance during Season 3 Episode 10, which was when Jamie Lannister arrives at King’s Landing to visit his sister Cersei Lannister. Upon entering Pile Gate, the area opens up to reveal the place where the King’s landing riot was filmed, when King Joffrey gets fruit thrown at him by one of the angry crowd members during Season 2 Episode 6.
Following the path behind Pile Gate will lead entrants into Dubrovnik’s old town.
Dating back to the 16th century is the Dubrovnik Ethnographic Museum, and is located in an old granary. Dubrovnik kept the reserves of grain in silos which were created out of a unique stone known as Rupe. For Game of Thrones followers, the Dubrovnik Ethnographic Museum is known to represent Littlefinger’s Brothel in King’s landing.
Although Littlefinger has a range of brothel’s to his name, his King’s Landing brothel is first seen in Season one when Catelyn Stark is escorted after being captured by the City Watch. Following his knighting, Bronn celebrates at Littlefinger’s Brothel by purchasing the services of the prostitute Mirelle in season three.
Later on, in season five we discover the High Septon has secretly been a patron of Littlefinger’s Brothel, paying higher-priced prostitutes for their services such as them dressing up as one of the Seven.
The iconic Jesuit Staircase descends from Gundulić Square, and at the top of the steps is where Dubrovnik’s picturesque Jesuit church of St. Ignatius is located. Game of Thrones enthusiasts will recognise the Jesuit staircase as the place where the memorable Walk of Shame scene begins.
Fans will recall the Walk of Shame stairs location when it appeared during GOT season five. This is the scene where the High Sparrow makes his speech before Cersei Lannister is stripped naked and is forced to repent her sins by taking a walk of shame down the staircase. The very first scene which saw Cersei standing at the top of the stairs was caught on camera at the Jesuit Staircase.
There are a variety of coffee bars and restaurants in this area, and the scene required the use of the location for the entire day, making this one of the most expensive scenes for HBO.
Rector’s Palace is located in Dubrovnik’s old town and was constructed in the 15th century. The palace was used as a seat of government in the days when Dubrovnik was an independent republic. Rector’s Palace has significance for Game of Thrones fans as being the filming location to represent Spice King’s Mansion.
We see Rector’s Palace being used as Spice King’s Mansion during episode six of GOT season 2 the Old God’s and the New. The palace is used to capture the scene where Daenerys Targaryen pays a visit to the Spice King’s Mansion in the city of Qarth, to request a fleet of ships to transport her army over the North Sea, her request is then denied.
Today, Rector’s Palace remains one of Dubrovnik’s most famous monuments and is now used as a museum.
St Dominic Street is often referred to as one of Dubrovnik’s most picturesque streets and connects Ploče gate and Stradun, and along the street is Dominic Monastery. Although St Dominic Street is perhaps not the most famous street in Dubrovnik, it is undoubtedly the most significant following the filming of the Walk of Shame scene in Game of Thrones.
After Cersei Lannister descends the staircase to begin her walk of atonement, St Dominic Street is the main stretch that she walks along as she is heckled passing by the crowds of King’s Landing. Also, St Dominic Street also represented the location in GOT season 2 where Bronn and Tyrion witnessed a protest speech.
St Dominic Street is further used to capture the scene of the murders of Robert Baratheon’s bastard sons by the Gold Cloaks.
Dubrovnik’s Minčeta Tower stands at the most robust part of the city walls, and views from the tower offer breathtaking views onto the old town below. The original 13th-century tower was replaced in the 14th century where the current structure now stands. Minčeta Tower is used to represent the outer exterior of the House of the Undying which is depicted during Game of Thrones.
The city of Qarth in the TV series is the location for the House of the Undying, and one of the most prominent scenes we see the location caught on camera is during season two. After her dragons are stolen Daenerys Targaryen desperately searches for the entrance to the House of the Undying in an attempt to rescue her beloved dragons from her enemies.
The real-life entrance to the Minčeta Tower is easier to find than in the series, although the best views to see are from above.
