Dragonstone Is Free and Open for Visits!

On this season of Game of Thrones, Daenerys Targaryen returned to Dragonstone, the abandoned castle where she was born.

 

Although the awe-inspiring castle is generated through CGI, the impressive landscape, and the trail on which Jon Snow trips at the sight of a dragon is real.

Along the coast of Biscay in Spain is where you’ll find San Juan de Gaztelugatxe. A hermitage dedicated to John the Baptist stands on the island. Accessibility is made possible by a narrow set of stairs. The long climb between the mainland and the islet is a real challenge. If you manage to survive this arduous journey, though, you can step into the footprint believed to have been left by Saint John the Baptist. It’ll give you good fortune! Traditionally, visitors ring the chapel bell three times in order to drive away evil spirits and pray for fertility.
