Every "Game of Thrones" fan is anticipating Season 7, the rumored second-to-the-last season for the medieval fantasy epic. It has been a year and more after the end of events in Season 6, which featured some amazing Northern Ireland landscapes featured as the land beyond "The Wall." Season 7 would feature locations in Spain, Iceland and once again Northern Ireland.

According to The Independent UK, Barrika's shorelines would be featured immensely in the new season and the news website believes it would serve as Daenerys Targaryen's landing strip where her soldiers would set foot and join the frayed kingdoms battling for the Iron Throne. The news website believes Murriola Beach in Barrika is Dorne, a fictional place in the GoT universe.

Spain's other locations are due to play bigger roles. In Cordoba is the Castillo de Almodovar del Rio, which would possibly serve as the Kingdom of Highgarden of House Tyrell. The location exudes 8th century to Middle Ages appeal and it is possible both the interiors and exteriors of Castillo de Almodovar del Rio would be used.

Winter is coming and in Iceland, winter looks its best. Tour operators have made it no secret that tour traffic has increased after fans knew it was Iceland where most of the seasons' winter scenes were shot. As filming begins in-location during this time GoT' crew could revisit old locations Dimmuborgir, Lake Myvatn and Hofoabrekkuheioi in Iceland for new shots of snowy goodness.

Northern Ireland is a prime shooting location for the series because of its dense and white-palette forests that ooze an appeal of mystery, fantasy and the medieval. According to The Telegraph UK, Northern Ireland's Downhill Strand and the village of Ballintoy are both iconic as the former being House Baratheon's landing bay and the latter being The Iron Islands in the form of Pyke.

In Season 7, a new location in Spain is likely to appear in the series. The Mayor of Santiponce, a city outside Seville, said that HBO said it might film several scenes in the Italica ruins, a Roman-age city with an amphitheater that appears to be a location for trial-by-combat -- gory in its nature given the series' touch for violence. Circular seating arrangements and the stone and grass look makes it an ideal location for a "Game of Thrones" scene indeed.
