Game of Thrones is The fictional worlds of Westeros and Essos span many continents in real life across the globe. Set is in the medieval ages and while there are some elements of fantasy on the show, the power struggle and the politics is as real as it can get.

If you've ever wondered where you could find the real locations of Games of Thrones map in the real world, this info-graphic by travel agency Lawrence of Morocco reveals the actual locations used in the hit HBO TV series.
