Here, in the "Red Keep", one of the most important events of the Games of Thrones took place in the second season - the Battle of the Blackwater.
Here at the fortress battles took place not only in the series, but in the history also. Its entrance is decorated with the inscription: "Freedom can not be sold for all the treasures in the world." It reminded everyone that if the enemies come from the sea, then the 12-meter-high walls will withstand the attack, but if someone decides to betray the king and attack from the inside, the fortress will not stand long.

An important fact is that a huge eternal fortress was built just in 3 months, when the local people learned that the Venetians were going to build their fortress on it, then they accelerated very quickly and when Venetians arrived they came upon a very big real wall with thousands of citizens standing here and showing indecent gestures :)
