SAN JUAN DE GAZTELUGATXE and ZUMAIA
Probably San Juan de Gaztelugatxe is one of the most iconic Game of Thrones Locations in Spain. It doubled as Dragonstone, where Daenerys was born. The bridge connecting the mainland and the peninsula was perfect for a couple of scenes in Season 7. For example Jon, Davos and Tyrion going to meet Daenerys.
Interesting fact is that there is no castle at the top, but a small church.
Itzurun beach in Zumaia also showed up for the Dragonstone beach scenes.
Bardenas reales is a semi-desert natural region of around 42,000 hectares in southeast of Navarra. This amazing natural place is the Dothraki sea in the TV show, where Daenerys met the Dothraki.
