Location: Los Albaricoques - Town of Morales

Los Albaricoques is a very familiar site to Spaghetti Western fans, beginning with it's appearance in A Fistful of Dollars.  This location would go on to appear in three LVC films, including For a Few Dollars More (as seen here), Day of Anger, and El Condor.

This small town has fully embraced this cinema background, with signage throughout the town marking where important scenes from these films were shot.  Additionally all the streets in the town have been renamed after Spaghetti Western personalities.

This report will focus on it's appearance as the fictional town of Morales in El Condor.

Location: Tabernas - Parting of Ways - Stranger & Gunfighter

The Stranger & The Gunfighter was LVC's last western shot in Spain. This production revisits many locations used in previous films such as For A Few Dollars More (Mini Hollywood), Captain Apache / Bad Man's River (EM70 Studios), and El Condor (the fortress is featured briefly).

Near the climax of the film LVC and Lo Lieh briefly part ways outside of the enemy fortress.  For this exterior and one brief interior later the El Condor fortress was used (the remaining fortress shots were shot at EM70 studios near Madrid). 

This scene was shot entirely in Tabernas in a ravine near El Condor.  While the remains of the fortress are now in ruin, the rocky landscape is still identifiable from The Stranger and The Gunfighter.
