Every Spaghetti Western fan knows what the above is; the ring where Col. Mortimer and Indio had their final duel in For a Few Dollars More. The ring which has been recently restored, resides in the town of Los Albaricoques.
While the ring itself is probably not original to what was used in the movie, it is an excellent recreation of what came before. From the right angle you can imagine being in the film!
While much of the surrounding town of Los Albaricoques has changed (the building Indio came out of is completely gone and has been replaced), this location is unspoiled, and remains a place that every LVC fan should visit!
I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Click to enlarge.
Yes, I did duel LVC while I was there. Below is a little Photoshop fun of mixing 1965 with modern day.
Above is a picture of a replica watch I bought for the trip. I took probably close to a hundred photos at the ring, many with me holding the pocket watch of course. In all my excitement I actually left the watch somewhere near the ring!
I drove back to Los Albaricoques the next morning to find it (who wouldn't want to go back to this location!). It was not where I thought I left it, so I figured it was gone. When I went back to the actual ring, there it was, sitting right by where LVC stood! Now not only do I have my watch back, but it has spent the night in the duel ring of Agua Caliente!
Next to Sad Hill from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, this is probably one of the most sacred places for a Sergio Leone fan! Not to be missed!
