Jolly good, Marmota! I think that's what it says on the stone. But the wood sign, I cannot say.

It's quite clear on that stone, except "L".
I don't know about the wooden one. But if I played with it in a graphic program, maybe I would see something... Grin

Wait, you can look at larger version on that site! That's great!

So there's something like "Cemeterio de Sad Hill" on the upper sign, then some small letters I cannot read on the site - but I saved it and I will look at it later.
On the bottom there's surely "1900", above it probably Sergio Leone (but I'm not sure) and more above again something I cannot read on the site.

I guess the small letters on bottom one is Spanish name of GBU - not sure: El bueno, el teo? y el malo

And, of course, it's 1966 - how could I mistake it!

I'll read it and translate. send a link. I can't seem to find the close up.

I wrote here most of it, except one part of those smaller letters, that cannot be read even if I look at it in 200 %, so I guess it really cannot be read.
Under the thumbnail there's sign "1024x..." (don't remember the exact number...) - if you click at it, you get the bigger photo.

Thank you, Marmota, for making an extra effort to read the signs! Yes, what you have transcribed makes sense. Seems like Spanish people really celebrated 40th anniversary of GBU paying an homage to Leone.

Well, I like playing with pictures on computer and sometimes I do much more time-consuming things with smaller results, so it's OK. Wink

Hello 
In the wood signal which puts it is: 
“Cementerio de Sad Hill” 
“Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef” 
“El bueno, el feo y el malo” 
“Sergio Leone” 
“1966” 
I put some photography to you of the inauguration of the monument to which actors like Aldo Sambrell and Frank Braña went.

Wow!! Great snaps!! Thank you for sharing them with us D. Montero. Were you there too? You are a lucky guy. It's great to see Aldo Sambrell there too. Seems like the ceremony attracted  a good crowd. And screening at Sad Hill? What an event! I wish I were there too!!
