Spaghetti Western Locations
In “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” the Stevens farmhouse is where Lee Van Cleef as Sentenza aka Angel Eyes makes his first appearance in the film. This is an actual house and was unoccupied when I was there in 2003 and 2005. Today it has been renovated and is currently occupied. The name for this location is Caserio Del Campillo de Dona Francisca and is located on a dirt side road on the road to Los Albaricoques. On this road are also a “Duck You Sucker” location where Sean rescues Juan from a firing squad and right next to the Stevens farmhouse is the cantina from “El Condor” where Jim Brown first locates and meets Lee Van Cleef.
