Anyone fancy a sneak peek into the upcoming Season 6 of the popular HBO series Game of Thrones? Despite the fact that filming is being carried out under strict security on a heavily-guarded set, photos and videos have emerged of production shooting scenes from Game of Thrones Season 6 in Girona, Spain.
The medieval city of Girona is yet another of several cities in Spain chosen as ideal and historic shooting locations for Game of Thrones Season 6. Filming of the new season is currently ongoing in the Catalan city of Girona, starting on September 3 and running through to September 18.
As reported a while back by the Inquisitr, tours have even been set up of the various Game of Thrones filming locations, including the Real Alcazar Palace in Seville, the bull ring in Osuna, and the Roman Bridge in Cordoba. No doubt the latest locations will be added on to those tours.

According to the Local, once shooting in Girona is complete, Game of Thrones production will move on to northern Navarre, followed by Peniscola in the east of Spain and finally Almería in the south in October, where scenes will be shot on the Alcazaba walled fortification in the city.
In the meantime, uploaded to YouTube by Chantal Galleana is a playlist of video clips showing the Waif (played by British actress Faye Marsay), as well as scenes played by Maisie Williams and a whole crowd of extras in Calle de la Claveria in the heart of Girona’s old quarter.
