... McKellen was filming whilst we were there too! The actual sets were really impressive and we spent ages looking around a huge fake castle that had been used in loads of films including Kingdom of heaven, Cleopatra, gladiator, troy etc as well as game of thrones. It was really cool, it looked so real but was so fake! It was really interesting getting an insight in the film industry. The next day we drove to see two gorges, Todhra gorge and the Dases gorge.
