The Good, the Bad and the Ugly – The final scene in Burgos

A 1966 Italian epic Spaghetti Western film directed by Sergio Leone and starring Clint Eastwood as “the Good”, Lee Van Cleef as “the Bad”, and Eli Wallach as “the Ugly”.

Its screenplay was written by Age & Scarpelli, Luciano Vincenzoni, Sergio Leone and Sergio Donati. Director of photography Tonino Delli Colli was responsible for the film’s sweeping widescreen cinematography, and Ennio Morricone composed the film’s score including its main theme. It is an Italian-led production with co-producers in Spain, West Germany and the United States.

The plot revolves around three gunslingers competing to find fortune in a buried cache of Confederate gold amid the violent chaos of the American Civil War.

Sad Hill Cemetery is a tourism site and former film location designed by Carlo Simi in 1966, and built by the Spanish Army. It was where the last sequence of the film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly was filmed.

After the filming, the place remained abandoned for 49 years until in October 2015 work began on the restoration of the cemetery by volunteers from the Sad Hill Cultural Association. The central cobblestones covered by a vegetal layer were unearthed for months and a crowd funding campaign financed the placement of the crosses in their original position / Image: via twitter.com/sadhilldoc
