Entertainment in Spain
Tabernas - Home to the 'Westerns' of the 1960s and 1970s
Almeria, Andalucia, Spain

Tabernas is formed of desert-like rocky outcrops and canyons that have played host to some of the most memorable movies of this era. Clint Eastwood's A Fist Full of Dollars, A Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad & The Ugly were filmed here, as was The Magnificent Seven. The movie sets (there are three 'wild west' towns to visit) are now tourist attractions, with live wild west shows, stagecoach rides and working saloon bars to enjoy.
The three film sets in the area: Fort Bravo, Western Leone, Mini Hollywood attract a modest number of tourists. It is the site of Moorish castle ruins, an old church, and a refurbished Teatro Municipal. The Desert Tabernas, because of its similarities with the North American deserts like the Far West of the American West, northern Africa, the Arabian deserts, and its lunar landscape, served from 1950s and onwards for the shooting of many films and westerns (the spaghetti westerns) making the area famous around the world.
