House Stark's ancestral home, Winterfell, is seen as the capital of the North. It's located in the center of Westeros' northernmost province, on the Kingsroad that extends from Storm's End to the Wall.

Film crews used part of the medieval Doune Castle in central Scotland's Stirling district to shoot Winterfell scenes.

During a vision, Bran sees his father, Ned Stark, go to the Tower of Joy to rescue his sister, Lyanna Stark. After fighting his way inside, Ned finds Lyanna close to death. She makes him promise to protect her newborn son, especially from Robert Baratheon, who hates anyone with Targaryen blood. Her plea confirms that her child is the son of Rhaegar.

Once Lyanna dies, Ned brings the baby to Winterfell. Honoring his sister's dying wish, he lies about the baby's identity and says the little boy, Jon Snow, is his bastard.

The Tower of Joy was filmed at the Castle of Zafra in Guadalajara, Spain.

During her walk of shame in Season 5, Cersei Lannister walked naked to show her penance. In real life, the street on which she walked is St. Dominic Street in the city of Dubrovnik, Croatia.

This street is also where the Gold Cloaks kill one of King Robert's illegitimate sons. It's also where Tyrion and Bronn see a protest speech in Season 2.

The Water Gardens of Dorne, within the residence of House Martell, have a bush and flower maze-garden. Trystane with his betrothed, Myrcella Baratheon, once walked though here, and the fight among the Dornish guards, Sand Snakes, and Ser Jaime and Bronn also broke out amidst the gardens' picturesque beauty.

These gardens were filmed in the Alcázar of Seville, Spain.
