With the abundance of art and architecture which it has inherited from many centuries of history and the lively and bustling activity of a southern Mediterranean town which is also a port, Seville fully justifies the old saying, "Quien no ha visto Sevilla, no ha visto maravilla" ("If you have not seen Seville you have missed a marvel").

Game of Thrones had done a good job of making sure Essos and the Free Cities across the Narrow Sea stay fresh in viewer’s minds, but lately that focus, when not on the cities around Slaver’s Bay, has been in Braavos, home of the Iron Bank as well as Arya’s friend Jaqen H’ghar.
