Visit the Games of Thrones Lannister Castle in Trujillo, Spain

Visit the Games of Thrones Lannister Castle in Trujillo, Spain

The medieval castle in Trujillo has become one of the latest filming locations for Season 7 of the award-winning fantasy drama series Game of Thrones.

The castle, which was built between the 9th and 12th centuries, was used as a backdrop for Game of Thrones Season 7 and rumor has it that it'll be the location for none other than Casterly Rock - the often mentioned home of the Lannisters.

Fans of the show have heard a lot about Casterly Rock but it's not been shown on screen as the majority of the Lannisters' stories take place at Kings Landing and then other parts of Westeros and Easteros.

But now, thanks to Trujillo Villas Espana, you don't just have to watch the show from your screen - you can stay there!

Trujillo Villas, which have three restored villas next to the castle and one property in the town’s main square, are including entrance to the castle in all rental bookings for 2017.

Trujillo is a medieval walled hilltop town overlooking the plains of Extremadura, three hours south west of Madrid.

The town was home to several of the 16th century conquistadors, who discovered the Americas and still remains relatively untouched by modernity and tourism. The castle stands at the highest part of the town, with views stretching across the countryside. It has 17 square defence towers, four preserved gates and a chapel.

Stay at the Artist's Studio

Stay at the 16th century Artist’s Studio high up in the town by the castle.

The property has been restored from ruins to create a stylish romantic hideaway for two with views over the plains of Spain.

A modern glass and steel staircase separates the bedroom and shower room on the mezzanine level, from the spacious open plan living, kitchen and dining area downstairs. A private terrace is tucked away at the rear of the property, with a dining table, seating area, sunloungers and outdoor rainforest shower.

Prices start from £595 per week, based on two sharing on a room only basis with entrance tickets to the castle. The villa is just five minutes’ walk to the town centre.

Stay at Villa Martires

Or you can stay in the grand Villa Martires, which was the army garrison for the castle in Roman Times from £4,950 per week based on four sharing.

Voted “Number 1 Villa in Hidden Spain” by the Sunday Times Travel Magazine, Villa Martires is a magnificent house overlooking spectacular 180 degree views of the countryside. Few views in Spaian are as glorious. 

Villa Martires was built in Roman times and extended in the 12th century as the military garrison to Trujillo’s castle. For centuries the buildings formed an important part of Trujillo’s defensive system. It is claimed that the military could see the onset of attacking armies by means of their armour shining like mirrors in the sunlight as they marched towards Trujillo! The same views can be enjoyed today from the immaculately maintained gardens. The castle can also be seen from the tennis court! It is truly a dream property.
