Spaghetti Western Locations
We continue with locations for "Once Upon a Time in the West". When Cheyenne is captured by Harmonica he takes him to Flagstone and turns him over to the sheriff who is conducting an auction for the Sweetwater ranch. Harmonica foils Franks plans of buying the ranch for next to nothing by offering the $5,000 reward for the ranch. The Palace Hotel used for the auction was also used in Leone’s "My Name is Nobody" for the famous shot glass shooting contest. This building is located in what it left of the Flagstone set and is today boarded and sealed up. It is used as a barn and storage facility for a nearby goat farm. Flagstone is located across the tracks from the Estacion La Calahorra-Ferreira.
