Part 2 of 3 on my coverage of Sad Hill.
Once arriving into Sad Hill, the walk towards the center of the fictitious cemetery is actually the same path that Tuco arrives at upon discovering the graves
Tuco begins his journey in search of the grave of Arch Stanton
I will admit that once I got to this location I cranked up Ennio Morricone's "Ecstasy of Gold", and proceeded to run around the entire area same as Tuco (no photos or video of that will be posted here!).
I was SHOCKED to see someone had erected perfect replicas of the grave markers of Arch Stanton and "the grave marked Unknown". CRAZY!
This is truly an awe inspiring location from arguably one of the greatest scenes in motion picture history, and as it was the last location I visited in Spain, it was the perfect end to the trip!
