Sunspear is the ancient stronghold of House Martell and the capital of Dorne. It is located on the far southeastern coast of Westeros and is surrounded on three sides by the sea. Sunspear is a walled settlement, protected by three massive winding walls encircling one another. Outside of the walls one can find mud-brick shops and windowless hovels.
