We continue our search for locations for “A Few Dollars for Django”. After putting the rowdies in jail Regan returns to the street and gets acquainted with Sally Norton who has finished her shopping and prepares to return to the ranch. Regan follows her from a distance in order to find out where the ranch is located.
This location is in Manzanares el Real and shows up in almost every western filmed in Spain. It is the location of the widows ranch in “The Big Gundown”, where Tuco is captured by Blondie in “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” and many others. This area today still looks just like in did 50 years ago but with housing creeping up all around two sides of the open flat land below the rocky outcropping behind.
