    Most of the Spaghetti Westerns are filmed in Almeria Southern Spain and the Tabernas dessert and the town of El Paso is still there although only 3 of the buildings are original as in the early 1970s a storm blew down most of the temporary facades. In September I will be making my 10th trip. A show is put on for visitors to El Paso, Its great fun and worth the visit there is another site “Fort Bravo” across the other side of the main road. Many scenes have been filmed around the Area. I just Love “Amore Amor” the place. Ian

      Are there professional or local guides to give you a tour of the many places where The Good, Bad, and
      Ugly was filmed? I would find it difficult to find the locations on my own, thank you.

    I visited the bridge location today and am walking from Santo Domingo de Silos (where I am now) to the cemetery tomorrow.

    I have read that the site where Tuco was first turned over to the law is actually in Italy, an old backdrop that had not been cleaned and looked appropriately dirty. And the site of the shoot out with Angel Eye’s men is a former set used by Jayne Mansfield to film Sheriff of Feactured Jaw; it was turned into a shelled city to replicate the actual Village of Peralta which the Yankees really did shell to pieces.
