Spaghetti Western Locations

Built in the early 1900s, the train station in Almeria was used in “Giu la testa” (aka Duck You Sucker). When Juan (Rod Steiger) and his family arrive in Mesa Verde you can see the station behind them. It is located about 1 km from the center of Almeria, where Ctra de Ronda and Autovia del Aeropuerto meet in a roundabout. Built in the early 1900s it is still used today by RENFE, the Spanish railway company to connect Almeria to Granada, Barcelona, Madrid, Seville and Cadiz.


  1. The Almería's Station was in his back, and in front was the Guadix Cathedral. Both places are separated 100km in real life!! :)

  2. That's correct. The magic of cinema.
