Spaghetti Western Locations
Hoyo de Manzanares is the location of the main town site for FISTFUL OF DOLLARS.
This town is off the main road M618 and not easy to find. There is nothing left of this site but a piles of rubble that once lined the main street of the town. You can still find some fence post footings where the Baxter house was located and some wood on the other end of the street where the Rojo house was located. The building in the distance to the right of the Baxter house which you can spot in the film and is still there and is called El Palacio Del Canto Del Pico. If you wander around the area you’ll find where the cemetery was located. It’s still an awesome feeling to walk down the street and pretend to tell Piripero to get three coffins ready as you approach the Baxter house.
