We continue searching for locations for “The Return of the Seven”. After a peon stumbles into the village and warns the villagers to hide before he dies, the village is attacked by a gang of Mexican vaqueros. After a brief struggle all the men are rounded up and led away into the hills. The scene shifts to a small crudely constructed bullring where we find Chris and Vin watching a bullfight.
This scene was shot in Colmenar de Oreja, where even today bullrings are assembled in the town square.
