Spaghetti Western Locations ~ Navajo Joe

We continue to our search for filming locations for the 1966 film “Navajo Joe”. As the train leaves the town one of the gang spots Joe and opens fire. Duncan yells out, “What are you shooting at”. One of the men replies that he spotted the Indian and recognized his horse. All the men then start to fire at Joe who rides across the tracks and up a hillside. Duncan takes a shot and hits the rider causing him to fall off the horse. When Duncan and his men run the body they discover it is Jim not Joe who dies while explaining that the Indian was waiting at the train when he arrived. 

Filmed on the old railway track near Gaudix, Spain.
