Apart from killing off main characters, the popular HBO series Game of Thrones is known for its fantastically exotic locations. Set in the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos, the show regularly films at UNESCO World Heritage Sites, medieval castles and remote, even hostile, destinations.

In the meticulously imagined world of Thrones, the most visible signs are the banners, sigils and crests that adorn the castles, markets and main thoroughfares of ruling families’ landholdings.

But what are the real signs like in the actual cities portrayed in the series? Because signs are often a window into the soul of a culture, we’ve collected photos from many of the show’s locations – both the old and the new – to answer that question.
