Braavos comes to Life in the Heart of Girona
Arya Stark spends time as a beggar in Braavos during season 6. The Braavos street scenes are filmed just behind the cathedral on Calle del Bisbe Cartaña, near the Jardins de la Francesa.
In episode 5, an outdoor market appears in Braavos. This was filmed in Girona's Plaça dels Jurats, a plaza that is also used for theater and concerts in real life.
Girona's cathedral makes an appearance in episode 6, when Queen Margaery is scheduled to do her walk of atonement. The scene takes place on the stairs in front of the cathedral, with the church in the background.
The Sant Marti and Sant Domenec steps are famous landmarks in Girona. They are featured in Game of Thrones in episode 8 when Arya continues to flee and stumbles down the stairs over a basket of oranges.

Girona appears twice in the explosive season finale: the Great Sept, which is blown up by Cersei in King's Landing, is the Girona cathedral. But there's more! When Sam and Gilly enter the citadel in Oldtown and marvel at the impressive library, who knew this was also in Girona?
This place is the Benedictine monastery Sant Pere de Galligants, an 11th-century Romanesque building. The monastery has an impressive archeological museum and is definitely worth visiting.
