Except for the second picture... but if they had left it as it was 40 years ago, it probably wouldn't be there at all today... Roll Eyes
Great photos, marqkin, and thanks for sharing!

I'm glad so many of you have so far enjoyed looking at the location photos I took in June.....I aim to post a few more as soon as possible....
....something that I've just remembered about the second one down - which is an interior of the church at Turrillas in Almeria - that some of you may/may not find interesting....
It was the interior of the church that was used as the inside of Indio's hideout in 'For A Few Dollars More', in 1965....
of course, at the time, the church was in a serious state of neglect, but has now been well and truly renovated, although you can still recognize it from the film - especially the stairwell at the back of the building.
The solid wooden doors (as featured in the photo), are the ORIGINAL church doors, as seen in the movie, and date back many, many years....
...When the rest of the building was renovated, it was wisely agreed to keep the doors as they were....
My guide for the location shooting (Richard, from the ever-reliable 'Tuco Tours'), was kind enough to organise for the church to be specially opened for a few minutes, so that I could take some photos.....normally it's locked up every day of the week, and is only ever opened on a Sunday for Roman Catholic services.....the elderly Spanish lady who has the key, guards it with her life.... so I did feel quite privilaged that I was able to get inside....
I have a few more pics of the interior, that I'll post if anyone is interested....?
Hope this is of interest.......
Adios for now.....

It is interesting, I would like to see more. Afro You were really lucky. Is the pulpit still there or did they change it?

It's great that they left the doors. The doors told me what location it was.

Yeah, the doors are cool. And of course, doors have great significance in Leone's work.

I've just posted some more photos of the church interior on the 'For A Few Dollars More' page.....
Having re-examined the photos I took, you can get an idea of where the pulpit was located at the front of the church in the film...the original pulpit must have been removed when the renovations took place, and was not replaced by a newer one....
Hope you enjoy the other pics...
