Spaghetti Western Location ~ Dehese de Navalvillar

Dehese de Navalvillar, Spain is a large area once used as pasture, which extends to the right of the M-625 road (leading to Guadalix de la Sierra) north of the town of Colmenar Viejo. La Dehesa de Navalvillar, dominated to the east by an isolated mountain - Pico San Pedro (1,423 meters high) -, has often been used by western cinema for a sequence of rides, chases, ambushes; but also for films of other genres. In the northern part of the Dehesa de Navalvillar, under the direction of the scenographers Jaime Pérez Cubero and José Luis Galicia for the film "7 from Texas" (1964) directed by Joaquin Romero Marchent a large fort is built (see Forte / Dehesa de Navalvillar) and a large ranch (see Rancho Cubero-Galicia / Dehesa de Navalvillar) and, about six kilometers from Colmenar Viejo, a few tens of meters from the road, a western village is used which is used in many films (see Poblado Lega y Michelena / Dehesa de Navalvillar).
