The GBU Graveyard (if it still exists)

This is what it looked like in march 2004.

I am heartened to know that many of the S.L. film sites have changed little over the past 40 years. Let's hope they remain in their pristine state for many years to come!! 8)

Any of the deserts where they filmed Lawrence of Arabia
I dunno . . . some of the places in the Phillippines where they filmed Apocalypse Now . . . not sure how safe it is there though . . .

I'd be more worried about safety with the LoA sites, inasmuch as many of them are in Jordan.  I mean I'm not going to go into the Middle East to sightsee unless I can be sure nothing major goes wrong. . . had a friend whose cousin just barely got out of Syria during the latest Israeli-Lebanon conflict.  They got out on a road that was bombed like ten minutes after they left Damascus. . .  :o

That's strange, on some comparison photos it was said to be in Almeria... But thanks for the tip.

I'm pretty sure it's Guadix.

Do you know a SW place near Madrid?

Quite a few scattered around the Madrid area such as Hoyo de Manzanares (Fistful of Dollars town location). Manzanares el Real (Rocks where Blondie first meets Tuco) and Aldea del Fresno (Fistful of Dollars river).

Medinaceli (Mesa Verdi) is a little North, but on the way to the Burgos region (~250 km) where you can see Sad Hill, the GBU bridge battle location and the GBU POW camp. The area around Burgos is a really beautiful part of Spain and very different to Almeria (medieval towns rather than whitewashed villages).

My favouroite SW location is Cortijo Del Fraile (Cabo De Gata) which was the GBU mission exterior. (scenes from FAFDM filmed there as well). Unforunately as each year passes it's condition deteriorates. It's an historic building beyond is use in numerous SWs and I hope something is done before its too late.

Thank you so much, Blindman! That's a pretty list. Now I know where to go if I ever get there!



There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.

Mesa Verdi is actually a whole hotchpotch of different locations.

When Juan leaves the railroad station, that's Almeria station. The next shot from behind Juan is of Guadix. The firing squad wall is also in Guadix.

The bank scenes were filmed in Medinaceli, near Madrid. The bank itself is not a real building - built for the movie only.

Oh I must've gotten confused. The station is Almeria but the city is Guadix.

Guadix station is also a SW location - it was used in Quien Sabe? (A Bullet for the General). There's a loco shed a little way from the station that houses the steam engine used for the film.

BTW Peacemaker, talking of steam engines, I really enjoyed the opening scenes of your movie. Great work.

Oh thank you.  :)

If you ever want to visit the railroad ( do it in summer when the Amish countryside is a lush green ) it's located near Lancaster Pennsylvania, only an hour west of Philadelphia.

I was in Philadelphia a month ago. Only if I knew.

Lancaster's great too, go into town if you get an opportunity to.  I've been there at least three times and enjoyed it immensely.

Where to find this railway station at Guadix? I'm going to Almeria in July, last year I didn't find this place.
I've been to the Cathedral at Guadix, but there was no rail or railway station in sight.
Anyone knows the location where to find the station?

The movie set I've always thought of the most is Monument Valley. It's a dream to see it!
