'Tabernas is a town situated in one of the near-desert areas of Spain. The landscape here is very strange indeed - rugged, desolate, with dried-out riverbeds and cacti everywhere. It looks so much like the American Wild West that many famous "Spaghetti Westerns" were filmed here in the 1960s and 1970s. The stage sets were left behind and you can watch (and join in) the re-enactments of bank hold-ups and see stuntmen in cowboy fights. The desert landscape is still used for television commerials and even by film directors as famous as Steven Spielberg.'
