Spaghetti Western Locations

We continue to our search for filming locations for the 1970 film “Adios, Sabata”. After the duel which Sabata shoots and kills the Murdock Brothers in a duel he is approached by Señor Ocaño and offered a sum of money to steal the gold of Colonel Skimmel for the revolution. He accepts the offer and is given a pouch containing the agreed upon cash. When Ocaño and his two associates leave he spots Juanito who asks to accompany Sabata on his mission. Sabata flips the pouch to him and tells him to give it to Father Mike and  tell him the Murdock Brothers have met their just rewards. Then another face appears that of Ballantine a refined  painter who also offers to help Sabata as he has an in with Skimmel as he is presently painting the colonel’s portrait.

This scene takes place in the familiar Spanish location of Las Salinillas, Spain where many Spaghetti westerns were shot including “The Ugly Ones”, “Death Rides a Horse”, “The White, the Yellow, the Black” and “The Deserter”.
