“Game of Thrones” season 6 news keep on coming to quench the thirst of fans for new updates. A recent report from International Business Time reveals that the show’s crew members are in Spain for the filming of the new season.

In a photo posted by Spanish website, LaVozdeAlmeria, the post reveals that the “Game of Thrones” team is currently building a new set in Pechina, Almeria. International Business Times further reports that the crew is constructing a circular structure much like a temple. They are using building materials imported directly from Ireland. Fresco Film Services has been contracted for the production work. However, apart from these details, everything is still under hush.

The filming location in Spain for “Game of Thrones” season 6 currently include Almeria, Gerona, Navarra, Peniscola, Santa Florentina Castle in Barcelona and Castle of Zafra in Guadalajara. During “Game of Thrones” season 5, DW notes that “Game of Thrones” have used Alcazar of Seville in Spain as a filming location for the Water Gardens where Prince Doran Martell lives. Not long after that, the city had a 25 percent boost in tourism, with fans flocking the site to relive their favorite show.

Pepe Pallares, a tour guide and also one of the many who applied as an extra for the show, takes people to the real-life water fountains to recreate scenes.

Meanwhile, “Game of Thrones” season 6 director, Jeremy Podeswa, confirmed that he had knowledge on the events for season 6, but requested not to tease him on dishing out the details.

However, Podeswa was again put in the hot seat in an interview with GoldDerby. When asked if Jon Snow really died last season, the director refused to again spill any details on Snow’s fate, saying, “I’ve got nothing, watch the show it’s going to be great. Jon Snows death was another huge storytelling thing.”

He further described season 5’s ending as “the definition of a cliff-hanger.”
