Spaghetti Wetern Locations
Continuing with location sites for "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly". After leaving Mission San Antonio and traveling past the remains of another Civil War battle field Tuco and Blondie are captured and taken to Betterville prison camp. This location is not far from the location for Sad Hill Cemetery and both are located on the same property. The location is a cattle ranch in Carazo. Tuco Tours has now marked the location with a placard. You’ll have to hike counterclockwise from the placard to locate a small opening in the fence. Here you’ll have to hike to the top of the hill to the left of the maintenance shed and yard. Little remains at the location but you will find bits of foundations, wood, particle board, the trench and the iron rings that were used to connect the small bridge where you entered the camp. Walk the area and keep a sharp lookout for material scattered on the ground. Clint, Eli, Lee and Sergio all walked this ground.
