Spaghetti Western Locations

Pozo de los Frailes

Pozo de los Frailes is located in a small town in the Spanish region of Cabo de Gata which you drive through on the way from Almeria to San Jose. If you drive through town slowly you will see an historical marker and a reconstruction of a water wheel. Stop your car and get out. If you look closely at the ancient Arab well and water wheel it should bring back memories of a scene in “A Pistol for Ringo” with Montgomery Wood (Giuliano Gemma) that is the same well and water wheel. The only difference is the fresh coat of white wash on the adobe walls and supports for the wooden beam.
