I viewed Mannaja today for the first time in ages.
I noticed the cave that Merli recovers his eye sight in is the same cavern that the Grotto sequence from DYS was filmed.

A treat for the Leone fan is seeing what's outside the cave, which Leone never shows you in DYS (leaving you to believe it's probably a set) but the outer parts of the entrance and it's surroundings are shown in "Mannaja".

I didn't know where the cave was located before but I do know the locations for "Mannaja". The Grotto is located somewhere in the jagged, sulfuric hills of Menziana.

A lot of Carnimeo productions were filmed here especially his Sartana sequels.

Interesting stuff Firecracker. I have yet to see Mannaja so I'll have to check that out soon.

Could be prhaps the grotte di Salone, same of deleted GBU scene? Or maybe, for DYS, one of the many caves around Guadix.

No, it's not the same location.


I'm certain the cave from DYS (and Mannaja) was filmed at Menziana.
That's what Sergio Martino says.

I can't see the pic well, but is that the same road where the stage massacre is in Parolini's Sartana?

Yes it's the same.
That road makes an appearence in all but two Sartana movies.
The pic itself is from HAVE A GOOD FUNERAL. I just wanted to show the countryside of Menziana.

Grotte Salone location, is near Rome see Google map link below. Which I believe was the GBU chicken grotto and DYS grotto. I assumed it was also the one used in Mannaja but could be wrong, and possibly Joe's recovery grotto in Fistful of Dollars?
