I have often been asked about this location as it is almost impossible to find today if you do not know where to look as nothing is obvious about it. The location for the Rojo hacienda from “A Fistful of Dollars,” was actually a museum located in Casa de Campo in Madrid.
Sometime during the 1950s the Spanish government had “Pabellons” (Pavilions) built showing examples of the culture found in each region of Spain. An entire street filled with different buildings filled the area known as Casa de Campo (Country House). Many of these buildings were demolished in the1990s.
When I visited there in 2003 with Don Bruce and Marla Johnson the building used for the Rojo house was gone except for the wall which led to the wine cellar which was guarded in the film by big Mario Brega. We found the arches in place but the wooden doors had been removed and stacked around the corner. When we returned to the site in 2005 nothing remained. A restaurant covered the site and the remaining wall was now located inside. The restaurant is called La Pesquera which is located on Feria del Campo along with several other restaurants and shops.
