↪ Casterly Rock ⇋ Burg Rheinstein, Germany (w/interiors from Edinburgh Castle)
Casterly Rock is a fortress, overlooking the harbor of Lannisport and the SunsetSea. It is the seat of House Lannister.
The fortress is carved out of a great stone hill and its natural defenses are further enhanced with walls and other structures, In fact, the Rock has never fallen. Legends say Casterly Rock is named for the family that ruled it in the Age of Heroes, the Casterlys, who no longer exist. The Lannisters trace their rule over it back to the Lann the Clever who tricked the Casterlys out of their castle and claimed it for his own. (from awoiaf)
*please note, the indoor shots of the ‘sigil’ are actually the interior windows for Edinburgh castle. The original Scottish flag is a roaring red lion on a gold background, almost to the tee of what the GOT makers have fashioned the Lannister sigil.
