Spaghetti Western Locations
Continuing with Spaghetti Western Locations from “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”. After Tuco and Blondie dispose of Angel Eye’s gang they continue on the trail to the buried $200,000. Suddenly they are halted and detained by a small detail of Union soldiers. This is the location for the battle for Langstone bridge and the area is not far from the interior location of the San Antonio Mission where Blondie recovered from his trek through the desert. The location is above a farmers field and across from Rio Arlanza. It is about a kilometer from the Ermita de San Palayo monastery. This location is marked with a sign posted by Tuco Tours. If you walk up the hill across the field you will find at the top of the ridge this overgrown road/path. It is here Tuco and Blondie were captured and taken to Captain Clinton for questioning.
