Spaghetti Western Locations ~ Cortijo La Joya Altica

Located near Retamar, Spain not far from the sand dunes area of Cabo de Gata. The interiors of the second prologue of “The Good the Bad and the Ugly” (1966) were shot here, when Sentenza, "The Bad" (Lee Van Cleef), meets Stevens (Antonio Casas) and kills him: this part is combined, an edited, with the outdoor shots filmed at the cortijo de Doña Francisca. Other films shot in the cortijo La Joya are: “Gunfight at High Noon” (1963): “A Bullet for the General” (1966): Texas Addio (The Avenger) (1966). Today this building is used as a pig pen and storage yard.
