Sorry did not really want to post but this has been bothering me for sometime.  If I am not mistaken I saw a picture of the place they filmed the cememtery scene a few years ago.  I cannot find it now--
Can anyone help with some info about the location of the cemetery scene. Maybe some recent photos?
Thanks in advance!

No, they built it all.

The location is in Spain, not quite sure where, and apparently it is visible through google earth.

Its not a real cemetery, in fact the land is used for grazing cattle.

See my post from a few days ago re Sad Hill, it also contains a Google map link to the location.

Thanks for the photos Ramon. I'm glad it has still remained the same...untouched
by civilization. I hope it stays that way for future generations. O0
BTW...any remnants or artifacts from the film laying around anywhere??

Many of the grave mounds are still visible even though all the fixtures were removed after filming. and athough the central arena area is overgrown with grass and shrubs you can still find the stones underneath.

Would be good to go with a metal detector and see what else can be found.

A few minutes away is the location of the POW camp, where three large trenches still exist plus some remains of the fittings for the bridge that the prisoners crossed.

Whats cool is that even though the grave markers are gone the mounds and the vegetation still mark the earth, almost like some mythic ancient arena.

I think somebody should carefully remove the grass off the arena.

The giant grass monster wouldn't care for that.

;D WTF? I just meant that it should be done carefully to avoid damaging the stones underneath.

The cattle are doing a good job, probably need a few more cows so they eat faster than it grows.

During the 2006 celebration I heard that Metallica  asked if it was possible to shoot a video here. They will probably clean up the arena if this shooting happens.

That would be the coolest video ever! Their next album is coming out in February so if they're going to shoot it there, they have about six months time.
