Spaghetti Western Locations
Estacion La Calahorra-Ferreira is directly behind the station siding location described in the last Spaghetti Western locations posting. Today it is the site of a large goat ranch. There are few foundations and empty brick buildings Simi constructed for the set of Flagstone and the saloon is now a storage barn. A main road cuts through the town site and this strange mixture of a former film set and current industrial operation is mixed in one view. To walk around where Sergio, Henry Fonda, Charles Bronson, Jason Robards and Claudia Cardinale walked and scenes were filmed really feels strange when you can see wind machines around you and the incessant sound of goats bombarding your ears.
