Remains of an old film set
The landscape around Tabernas has been used since the 1960s as the setting for many western films. The last being an episode of Dr. Who filmed last year. Many of the old film sets have been preserved as tourist attractions but on the way back from the town this afternoon we stopped to explore a derelict site.
A few stone walls and wooden buildings of the makeshift wild west town survive.
A millstone and was the building the saloon?
Dead trees and stone walls
Trees planted at the time of the filming have been neglected and died adding to the eerie atmosphere.
Looking towards Fort Bravo
In the distance we could see one of the sets which is now a tourist attraction “Fort Bravo”
Wild flowers are growing in abundance here including this pink Limonium.
Typical landscape of Tabernas
Further along the road we stopped to photograph this landscape which typifies the badlands of Tabernas.
