Spaghetti Western Locations ~ Adios Sabata

We continue to our search for filming locations for the 1970 film “Adios, Sabata”. After Cotero in disposed of the scene shifts to a large saloon where Sabata is playing the piano. Ecudo arrives with his men and as they get drinks at the bar the insulted by Austrian aristocrat who is told to shut up by Sabata. The Austrian throws a knife which sticks in the piano a foot from Sabata’s head. Sabata continues to play until the Austrian challenges him to a duel, Sabata moves to a table where his rifle is leaning against the back of a chair. He calmly sits down and crosses his legs. When the Austrian goes for his pistol Sabata kicks the rifle over which fires killing the Austrian. Sitting at a nearby table is Folgen who we saw earlier who sent the three Austrians into the stable to kill Sabata. Foiled again Folgen grabs his hat and bag and walks out. Reciting the secret phrase Sabata introduces himself to Escudro and his men. Just then the piano starts up and the same piece is heard being played by Ballantine. Sabata tells Ecudo and his men to wait outside while he finalizes his deal with Ballantine. They seal the deal by playing a duet together on the piano.
