6. Minčeta Tower, Dubrovnik, Croatia (House of the Undying)

Daenerys Targaryen goes looking for her dragons inside but is kidnapped by the warlocks. Who can forget this scene? I almost had tears in my eyes when that happened. Though they got fried by the one and only Drogon later, but still.

The Tower of Joy—which plays a pivotal role in Lyanna Stark’s much alluded storyline sits between Madrid and Barcelona.
