The Tabernas Desert
Tuesday, 22nd June 2010 by Noel Ballantyne
Located in the south of Spain, the protected wilderness area features three seperate wild west villages, which have been used as locations in many films and all are now tourist attractions. Spread over an area of 280 km
Texas Hollywood, also known as Fort Bravo, close to the town of Tabernas, was used a location for the making of Laurence of Arabia, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and many, many more films.
The location comprises both a Texas and Mexican-styled village, including saloons, hotels, churches, a fort and close-by, an Indian village of wigwams which are visible in streetview.
Mini Hollywood, also known as Oasys Theme park, was used in For a Few Dollars More, Conan the Barbarian, and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. The film set is part of a theme park, which includes a zoo with bears, giraffes and tigers – and if you’re looking for somewhere to host a western-themed wedding, the set is available to hire.
