Mini Hollywood

Approx 30 minutes drive towards Almeria, Another good day out at this Wild West town/animal park. Walk in the footsteps of some of the giants of cinema history! Mini Hollywood was the first and the most famous of the film sets built in this desert landscape. Where world renowned Westerns such as The Good,The Bad and the Ugly and A Fist Full of Dollars had many of their scenes filmed, there is now a fully interactive theme park within the streets of the renovated film set and a more recently added Zoo, with many interesting animals to see. Thrill at the Western Show (a staging of the capture of the outlaw Jessie James and his gang) performed 3 times a day in high season then enjoy a cool beer and the high kicking antics of the Cancan Dancers in the authentic surroundings of the Yellow Rose Saloon (dance performances 3 times in high season). There are various museums to the Old West and to the heritage of cinema and the not to be missed Photo Studio with the chance to dress as cowboys and indians for a sepia tinted souvenir of your visit. You may also recognise this as the location of David Beckham’s Pepsi add. Very much a family outing with ample restaurants, play areas, horse riding and a water park (in high season). Remember you are in a desert and especially in the summer months it is very hot so do not forget the sun block.

Texas Hollywood
In the same vein and only 3 kms back down the road towards Tabernas. This is a film set which is still currently in use so you may find yourself walking on as an extra in a blockbuster Western! Still appealing to the kid in us all but this park is more of a grown up option.

Cuevas de Sorbas
For a break from the sun why not visit the fascinating Cuevas de Sorbas where deep gorges and stalactite caves have been carved out of the limestone sub strata. 3 types of guided tours are offered, from a basic 2hr tour to a lengthy pothole. Found on the N340 just before Sorbas on the left.
