We continue our search for locations for “A Few Dollars for Django”. Passing the crowd and a man being dragged by a horse down the main street of the small town Regan stops at the sheriff’s office. Tying up his horse at the hitching rail he walks into the office and finds the old deputy tied up and gagged. He unties the man who thinks Regan is the new sheriff come to tame the town. Before Regan can argue or tell the man he’s mistaken he’s shoved out the door and down the street to break up the lynching.
As mentioned before this townsite is at Colmenar Viejo and most of what is left sits in a cow pasture next to a military helicopter base. The pasture is fenced in but there is parking off the side of the road and a gate that allows you to walk in and among the rocks, bushes and road apples. Look in and around the various berry bushes and you’ll still find parts of brick buildings, foundations and scrap lumber that once comprised the town.
