Title: Cemetary Location GBU
Post by: realboss on May 06, 2004, 02:32:26 AM
Trying to find this. Been to Burgos area twice now in Northern Spain and found a few places was amazing. However, I want to find the location of where the shootout was filmed. Can anyone help? I need specifics though rather than "Burgos"!!

Met an old couple sat outside their house in the hills in a small village. Had a chat and they said they remembered the film crew arriving and horses and actors. Was funny as they didn't know what film it was and probably haven't even seen it. I went up into the hills and found a few locations. It was strange though. Very atmospheric and "alive".

Here you go:
Take No. 1 route south out of Burgos town. Turn left (east) at Lerma on 110 and drive to Covarrubias. Go straight through town, through gorge, past San Pedro de Arlanza monastery (for other GBU location pictures), through valley where GBU battle scenes were filmed, to Hortiguela on 234. Turn right on 234, then right again at Barbadillo del Mercado. Follow small road to Contreras. At southern end of Contreras go out on dirt track and take right fork. Climb up valley and when it narrows you come to a sharp right-hand bend. Park there by fence and walk over cattle grid. Walk straight ahead for 150 metres and you will find yourself in the cemetery. (Carry on up dirt track for views overlooking cemetery). See my pictures at http://community.webshots.com/user/mrlocation
Enjoy  ;)
