Game of Thrones to start filming in Spain's Basque Country, says mayor
Spain's Basque Country might see a surge in popularity after it has been revealed as the location for Game of Thrones' season seven.
Filming at Muriola Beach in Barrika is set to begin in October and the town's mayor says everything is "shrouded in mystery".
"We do not know exact dates or who will come, nor if new extras will be needed", Robert Munoz told El Correo.
Barrika is a town in the province of Biscay, in the autonomous community of Basque Country, northern Spain.
The popular hit fantasy series is set in the fictional kingdom of Westeros but is filmed in various locations.
Fans have speculated that the Spanish beach will act as the landing area for Daenerys and her huge fleet.
