Spaghetti Western Location ~ Rodalquilar

Rodalquilar is a gold mining town near which in 1883 gold was discovered; in 1933 the town had about a thousand inhabitants. The mines, first exploited by an English company, were then nationalized and remained active until 1986. Today Rodalquilar is a tourist center and the location of several old mines (in particular Minas de Avellan) and the dirt road above the town is used in some western films, including “Bullets Don’t Argue” (1964); “And for a Roof a Sky Full of Stars” (1968); “A Minute to Pray, a Second to Die” (1968); “Death Sentence” (1968); “One After the Other” (1968); “A Long Ride from Hell” (1968); El Condor (1969); “Blindman” (1971); “Duck You Sucker” (1971); “Massacre at Fort Holman” (1972); “Comin at Ya!” (1981).
