Spaghetti Western Locations
Continuing with locations from "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly". The tables have turned again on Tuck. He and Blondie have discovered the location of buried gold, with each of them knowing only have of the secret. Tuco’s vengeance has left Blondie near death and he must get him to help. Knowing his brother, a monk, is at a nearby mission he loads up Blondie and heads for it’s location. On the way they are stopped by a Confederate detachment guarding Apache Canyon. This location avoided remained the last of the locations to be discovered. It is a night scene so the surrounding area could not be detected in the film only the building in the background. The location is a private residence and has undergone a few changes which left it very difficult to find. Luckily Regis Cluseau and my friend Yoshi Yasuda confirmed the lost sight. The location is Cortijo Monterreal and was also used in the film "Johnny Yuma" with Mar Damon. It is located off of route A-349 near the town of Pago Aguilar Bajo north of Tabernas.
