Location: Cortijo Del Fraile - Indio's Camp


Cortijo Del Fraile which is only a few kilometers from Los Albaricoques, and was featured most prominently as Father Ramirez's Mission in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, was also used as Indio and his men's base camp once they reached Agua Caliente in For a Few Dollars More.  For this the rear of the structure was used.




Sadly now as the location is in a terrible state of disrepair (despite "protected" status), one cannot explore this area as it is fenced off.  However through the fence you can make out the area in which Indio and his men put the beat down on Monco and Mortimer.

  1. I noticed on the extras on the lastest DVD of For A Few Dollars More that it didn't look that good during the "then & now" part for several of the locations. It's actually worse than I thought. Pictures are very clear & good. Good job mate!

    1. I believe those extras were from over 10 years ago, so naturally things are getting worse for wear. As the entire area was fenced off, those were the best I could get of this location!

  2. The roof was used for the roof for the prison in For a Few Dollars More and also for a location in Bullet for the General where Klaus Kinski throws dynamite down on the troops saying, "In the name of the Father, the Son...."
