I think the question is, where is this location?

Arch,

did you get an answer to your question, I was interested too to find out where this place is?

I was also wondering where the location in the following town scene was filmed, where Blondie gets the bounty for Tuco, I don't recognise it as one of the Spanish western towns, could it be the Italian set?

All the best
Ramon

You are right again Ramon: I think that this location is in Italy, near Rome and Elios Studios where was shot the first hanging of Tuco (the second was in El Paso set, the third in Higo Seco in Cabo de Gata, near Albaricoques and Fernan Perez, u know) but I have not the proof: too much "dineros" are wanted to make trips over the world to search Leone locations!!! Grin
Another very important location is White Rocks set: prof. Frayling says that is the El Paso set but I don't agree.
Maybe White Rocks was shot partly in Italy partly in Spain: when il Monco arrives in the rainstorm was shot in Spain (Colmenar?), when he goes away was shot in Italy, maybe near the location asked in this topic.
An intriguing possibility!

There may be a clue in the saloon in White Rocks which doesn't look to me like either of the El Paso hotel / saloons to me, so that begs the question where is it?

I also heard the theory that the the start of the White Rocks sequence is the El Paso set but finishes in another set. Looks like we'll have to wait for Don's book.

Saludos
Ramon

The story regarding White Rocks in FAFDM, as told many times on the old board is this:

Leone shot both his night and morning exterior White Rocks scenes in one location, in either Spain or Italy

At the end of production, Leone discovered he had some money left over. He decided to use it to reshoot the night arrival at White Rocks, because he had never been happy with the original rushes. In the reshoot,  the rainstorm was added for extra atmosphere.
The location he chose for the reshoot was different to the one where he first shot the scene, and the theory was that if the White Rocks scenes were originally shot in Spain, then the reshoot was done in Italy, and vice versa.

This story was used to explain why the night scenes at White Rocks look like they are shot at a different place to the morning scenes at White Rocks. i.e: because one half of White Rocks is in Spain, and one half in Italy.

The origin of the story has not been traced.

It may all be complete rubbish, but I don't think it can all be true.
