We continue on our search for filming locations for
“Return of the Seven”. Lorca and the 30 men he has left have taken refuge in
the cemetery and surrounding deserted buildings of the village. He is waiting
for Lopez to return with the rest of the men who work at his hacienda. During
this lull in the fighting the ‘Seven’ decide on a surprise attack. Catching
Lorca by complete surprise they start to do considerable damage when Vin’s
horse is shot and he takes up refuge behind one of the walls of the cemetery.
The fighting continues when all of a sudden Vin notices the hilltops and ridges
become full of Lorca’s men. He signals Chris who rescues Vin and they ‘Seven’
ride back to the church to confront Lorca in a final showdown.
The cemetery is located in Agost and can be found using
the lone building shown in the background from the original shooting location.
