Try to find the locations in this site. It's basically a Japanese site but locantion names and film titiles are written in English or Italian. Buona Fortuna!

If I'm not mistaken...Django Kill was filmed in italy (not Almeria which is what your looking for correct?). The town was a set. The desert in the opening of the film (and the flashback) was a construction yard.

Wonderful site. Looks like Mini-Hollywood is the place to be. considering all of the spags that used it as a set, and how close a lot of the locations are to it.

There are not too many things in life that have given me a bigger thrill than seeing my shadow walking gun in hand, poncho laden through "El Paso" at Mini Hollywood.  How sad am I????

Almeria was mentioned on the science show "What on Earth".  A fair amount of Almeria has greenhouses covered in white plastic, grow lots of vegetables for Europe, and can be seen from space.  The program also mentioned Clint Eastwood films made there, showed posters/DVD covers of GBU and Fistful of Dollars.

"This 350 square kilometre sea of plastic grows vast amounts of tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers every year. In fact, a councillor in Andaluc?a said in 2017 that 70% of tomatoes exported to the EU came from here and Granada."
