Spaghetti Western Locations
Nueva Frontera is a ¾ scale bordertown set used in “Chino”, “Straight to Hell”, “Silver Saddle”, “Tex and the Lord of the Deep”, “Scalps” and “Comin' At Ya!” It seems once the town was built and used, everyone else just used it in whatever state of decay they found it. It is located on the same side of the Express, Autovia 92, as the location for the “Duck You Sucker” station covered earlier. You can use the same access road and follow it back towards Almeria. It sits on a small plain and is in decay. When I was ther in 2003 the church was starting to collapse but was being propped up. In 2005 the roof had caved in and parts of the walls were down. Only the adobe style town buildings were left in different states of decay none had roofs. Boards and plastic sheets were blowing and laying everywhere.
