A Trip to Almeria

It was early 2003 that I was planning the year's holiday with my girlfriend Helen. She had suggested a city break in Andalucía, Spain, taking in the sights of Seville, Cordoba and Granada. However, looking at the map it didn't seem an outrageous prospect to plan a day excursion to Almeria to visit some of the Western sets, now run as theme parks.

About the same time, Professor Mario Marsili sent me a copy of a film he had made - a record of his search for some of the Spaghetti Western locations. This became my inspiration, and using the video as leverage for Helen, I was surprised at how little persuasion was required to convince her that our holiday should be centred in Almeria.
