St. Lawrence Fortress. Dubrovnik
Fort Lovrijenac or St. Lawrence Fortress often called Dubrovnik's Gibraltar. It has a triangular shape with three levels and was defended with 10 large cannons, being the largest and most famous called "Lizard". The walls facing the sea are up to 12 meters thick, but on the eastern side of the fortress facing Dubrovnik the walls are only 60 centimetres thick. Such construction was done purposely, in case the Fort was taken by an enemy it could easily be destroyed directly from the city walls and fort Bokar.
Fort Lovrijenac doubles as the Red Keep in King's Landing, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms. Lots of the scenes are filmed at this Fort including the tournament thrown in honour of King Joffrey's name day in season two.
