Ucceda is a small town in the province of Guadalajara, whose territory is separated from that of Torremocha (in the province of Madrid) by the Rio Jarama. Between the river and the barren and steep hills that extend to the south there is a farm, called Finca El Soto, in which some westerns ere filme, for which a ranch was also built, which included five buildings, among which a two-story ranch house and stable with a high pitched roof, very similar to that of Triple X Ranch in Jackson Hole (Wyoming), used as a set in the film Jubal, 1956 and in some other westerns. The Finca El Soto farm is still active today: but the sets have disappeared.
