Spaghetti Western Filming Locations A very unique website that deals with locating original filming location of spaghetti westerns in Spain. This must have taken the author a long time to put together -- I take it he spent many of his holidays in Spain. The only down side to this website is that its either in Japanese or Italian, but its mostly in Japanese. However, its still very interesting to look through. We rank this website 9 out of 10 stars, just for originality. Very nice!

The town is located 10 hours North of the City Vancouver, B.C., Just 50 miles east of Quesnel, and was restored for British Columbia's centennial celebration in 1958. It continues to be upgraded and improved and now features over 100 buildings.
