Spaghetti Western Locations
While Mini Hollywood is basically a theme park for tourists, Texas Hollywood is still a working set that allows visitors to roam the streets. Located only a stone’s throw away from each other Texas Hollywood is located on a dirt road a mile or so off the main highway. While only the saloon is open for business, Texas Hollywood gives you the feeling of what it must have been like at the peak of the Spaghetti Western era. Dusty streets, faded buildings and the smell of horse manure. There are Mexican and American towns constructed next to each other. Some of the buildings are only fronts while others are complete. If you see the film or DVD of “800 Bullets” you’ll get a feel for what the town is like today. Stunt shows are performed and you can rent a horse and ride around the area. Another must see for any Spaghetti Western fan.
