Spaghetti Western Locations

We continue our search for “Return of the Seven” film locations. The group finally reaches the village where they find it deserted and one of the village men hanging from an archway of one of the buildings.

The location of the village is called Agost. Even though the landscape is desolate and a perfect place to film westerns only “The Return of the Seven” has been filmed in the area. The village location is now gone replaced by a brick and tile factory which has even removed several of the surrounding hills which were seen in the film. These hillsides were used by the plant in the manufacturing of the tiles and bricks.

For a more detailed view of this site and other Spaghetti Western locations please visit my friend Captain Douglas’ excellent website:                          
and Yoshi Yasuda’s location site:           

[Captain Douglas has dedicated and entire section of his website to “The Return of the Seven” with behind the scenes photos and stories, highly recommended.]


  1. Very interesting , I live in Agost, its a shame that the set is all gone now, but it is truly like the wild west here !
    Hope some tourism can be generated by this now almost forgotten set

  2. I've been to Spain twice. The problem I see is the people who run Mini Hollywood now called Parque Oasys and Rancho Leone attempt to advertise them as locations for American Westerns. They play American western scores and pretend American films were made there. Spain has its own history of making westerns and should take pride in the fact that the films made there have international recognition and admiration. Take pride in the films made there and don't try and link them to there Amercan cousins.
