The ‘Sad Hill Cultural Association’ was born from an initiative carried out by the Archaeological and Paleontological Group of Salas de los Infantes in 2006, when the 40th anniversary of the film’s shooting was celebrated.
In 2014, several people of the area; Hontoria del Pinar, Santo Domingo de Silos, Covarrubias, etc. joined together with the intention of creating a group to reclaim the touristic and cultural value of the sites around Burgos used by Sergio Leone in the shooting of ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’.
The main purpose of the association is to recover the locations used in the province of Burgos for the movie’s shooting, particularly SAD HILL CEMETERY.
Throughout this process we would like to promote different cultural events (concerts, exhibitions, courses…) that help to build up a name for the Association and can be used as a prologue for the longed-for fiftieth anniversary.
Our goal is to get fifty tombs restored by 2016 when the fiftieth anniversary will be held and be able to celebrate the shooting’s date in a special way.
