In the middle of this impressive landscape of the desert of Tabernas this cowboy village reminds of the Wild and Far West of America. In the sixties and seventies famous directors came under the spell of this natural scene and decided to make their fims here. Famous films were made here, such as The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, Lawrence of Arabia, For A Fistful of Dollars and Once Upon A Time, amongst others. Also scenes for the films Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, 2001-A Space Odyssey and Patton were shot here.
FORT APACHE Indeed there is a scene as Fort Apache, but in reality it is only meant to be a scene, as it has never been used in a film.
SALOON Any cowboy film that appreciates itself has a Saloon, where they play poker and drink whiskey and where during the fights the furniture is broken and they jump through the windows.
THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE The Sheriff’s office should not miss, with jails for the prisoners, who bandits always want to free.
GALLOW Rarely are the lynchings and executions in the cowboy movies performed, since it is almost always "the good guy" who at the last moment knows to avoid them.
BANK The scenes of bankrobberies are mostly the most spectacular scenes, because the “bad guys” are always very bad.
CHURCH With respect to the robberies and the shooting, the church is without doubt a place of peace, where the priest leads the believers along the right path. In the cowboy films every Sunday almost all the inhabitants went to church.
SCHOOL The school is not exactly one of the most frequently used decors in cowboy films as there are hardly any children appearing in this kind of films.
You can also enjoy the Animal Reserve, with more then 170 species of animals originating from different continents and specialized in savage habitats, especially in the African Savanna.
