"It's a beautiful country and great for filming," said co-creator, co-showrunner and screenwriter Ryan Condal. Miguel Sapochnik, co-showrunner and director, also said: "We went a bit on a whim and our jaws dropped".

"We came to a country that has never had a series of this scale. We came to a village that has never seen anything on this scale and in a very inaccessible place. But we had a lot of support from the residents. They gave up their homes, worked on the series and loved the experience. ", said Sofia Noronha, production manager. "This was a big event for Portugal, for our entire industry and for the entire local team."

"House of the Dragon", which takes place 200 years before the events of "Game of Thrones", tells the story of House Targaryen and is based on the book "Fire and Blood" by George R.R.Martin.

The first season is now available on HBO Max.
