Sisterton is a town[1] located on Sweetsister, an island of the Three Sisters, in the Bite. The seat of House Borrell,[2][3] it is considered the most notorious smuggler's den in all of Westeros.[4]


Sisterton is a small, mean town, rank with the odors of pig waste and rotting fish. Its streets are made of mud and planks, while its are houses daub-and-wattle hovels roofed with straw. By the Gallows Gate there are always hanged men with their entrails dangling out.[5] The Night Lamp, a lighthouse tower, and House Borrell's castle, Breakwater, are located at Sisterton.


Prior to becoming a smuggler's den, Sisterton was a pirate's nest.[5]

During the Dance of the Dragons, Prince Jacaerys Velaryon gained Houses Borrell and Sunderland for the blacks during his visit to Sisterton.[3]

Lord Eddard Stark was taken to the Three Sisters by smallfolk near the start of Robert's Rebellion. Against the advice of Breakwater's maester, Lord Borrell allowed Ned Stark to leave Sisterton and continue on to the north.[5]

While serving as the master of ships for King Robert I Baratheon, Lord Stannis Baratheon once sailed to Sisterton with a fleet and made Lord Godric Borrell hang twelve of his friends, probably for smuggling. Stannis threatened to do the same to Godric if any ships were to crash if the Night Lamp ever went dark.[5]
