The base of Minčeta Tower was used as the exterior of House of Undying in the town of Qarth. It is the place where Daenerys Targaryen walks around trying to find the entrance into the House of Undying looking for her stolen dragons in season two.
The most prominent part of Dubrovnik's walls is the rounded Minčeta Tower where the walls are 6m thick, the better to protect Dubrovnik from attacks by land. The tower Minčeta is the highest point of the walls which offers an unforgettable view on the old town of Dubrovnik. The tower's name derives from the name of the Mencetic family, who owned the ground upon which the tower was built.
The fort was originally built in 1319 as a high reaching quadrilateral fort according the designs of local architect Nicifor Ranjina. Around the earlier quadrilateral fort Florentine architect Michelozzo di Bartolomeo built a new round tower. The tower was completed in 1464 by architect and sculptor Juraj Dalmatinac, who designed and built the high narrow round tower.
Minčeta is the most beautiful and remarkable fort of Dubrovnik and often regarded as the symbol of the city.
