Spaghetti Western Locations

The Azucareza at San Torcuato in Guadix was a sugar beet plant which these pits were used for the mass execution scene in “Duck You Sucker”. The above photo was taken in 2005, before the recent housing development was begun and now covers the plant and pits. Another Spaghetti western location lost to the ages.

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


  1. I was in Guadix 2 years ago, on a location hunt, didn't have time to visit this the sugar factory, and now it's gone! Is nothing sacred!

  2. Sorry Adrian. We were only able to stand on the car and look over the wall of the factory and see the pits. The plant has been closed for years but everything looked the same. If you want to see these locations time is running out so go soon.
