Western Leone

This is where Sergio Leone filmed some of his epic Western 'Once Upon A Time In The West' (1968).

This location was used for the town 'Sweetwater' and the large red house is that of the McBains, Jill McBain's (Claudia Cardinale) charcter being central to the whole film.

Other parts of the set where used to film the Franco Nero vehicle 'Texas, Addio' (1966) too.

Ennio Morricone's brilliant music was blasted out from hidden speakers during our visit.
