Spaghetti Western Locations

The small house where Marisol was kept was shown from the outside in an earlier post. It is now the Hotel Cotijo El Sotillo and is located in San Jose, Spain. The interior used in “Fistful of Dollars” is now the lobby for the hotel. The fireplace is surprisingly almost exactly the same as seen in the film. One can almost picture Marianna Koch coming out of the door and greeting you.

For a more detailed view of this site and other Spaghetti Western locations please visit my friend Yoshi “Garring” Yasuda’s excellent website:


  1. Nice. I'll try to visit this summer.

  2. By the way my partner at "Por um punhado de euros" have been there, his comments and photos are here:

  3. The grain ring behind this location was used in DAY OF ANGER where Lee Van Cleef is dragged behind the horse before Gemma throws him a gun and Lee shoots and kills the riders.
