About a kilometer below Polopos is Puntal de Polopos, a picturesque complex of rustic house ruins, which appears in “Johnny Yuma” (1966) (in the rambla at the foot of the village there is also a farm house); "A Bullet for the General "(1966) (the village where Lou Castel kills General Elias); "The Avenger" (1966); "God Forgives ... I Don’t" (1967) (in a scene in which Terence Hill controls the village from the same spot as Lou Castel was seen); "Professionals for a Massacre" (1968); "A Train for Durango" (1968); "Blood and Guns" (1969); "Sonny & Jed" (1972)
