Game of Thrones Season 7 is here, after a long, long wait. With three episodes in already, the season seems to be going pretty well. Now, as some of you already know, the books on which the show is based have amazing descriptions of the locations, and there even exists official illustrations, based on them. In the latest episode, titled ‘The Queen’s Justice’, we got to see two castles being finally depicted on screen, Highgarden of House Tyrell, and Casterly Rock of House Lannister, and they left the fans disappointed. Read on!

Before the episode aired, fans knew they were going to get a look at Casterly Rock, and everybody was excited:

However, Casterly Rock ended up being much smaller on screen than any of us had expected :

Highgarden was a surprise reveal for the episode, and those who have read the books were disappointed as well, having anticipated a much larger and greener castle. Some even said that they thought that it was just the other side of Casterly Rock :

Here’s how Casterly Rock has been described in the books :

“The Rock has been measured as thrice the height of the Wall or the Hightower of Oldtown. Almost two leagues long from west to east […] no castle in the Seven Kingdoms is larger, richer, or better defended.”

..and Highgarden :

“Many consider Highgarden to be the most beautiful castle is all the Seven Kingdoms […] Highgarden is girded by three concentric rings of crenelated curtain walls […] Ivy covers the older buildings and grapes and climbing roses snake up the sides of statuary, walls, and towers. Flowers bloom everywhere.”

It seems like the showrunners did their best, and the descriptions and illustrations seem impossible to pull off in the real world. What was your reaction to the castle reveals? Tell us in the comments, down below!
