About
Fort-Bravo/ Texas-Hollywood are the largest western movie sets in Europe. They are located in Tabernas Desert, Almería. They were built in the 60s for the filming of Sergio Leone's many films, the famous spaghetti-western. We open every day from 9:00 a.m. until 18:00 p.m. in winter and until 19:30 p.m. in summer. Currently, our sets continue to shoot films, commercials, video clips, short films, etc. During your visit, you can see an authentic wooden town in the American Old West, a typical Mexican town, a military fort and an Indian town.

The Good: Fun afternoon feeling transported to the old American west even though you are in the south of Spain. You have seen all the movies, now visit the real set used in 100s of films. The Bad: The show was okay but after the first 30 minutes, same old scenes of shooting bad guys, fake fights, bad soundtrack. But stunt horse riding was excellent.The Ugly: a little overpriced, and overacted.

Some reviewers have confused this place with Oasys Mini Hollywood. Texas Hollywood is also known as Fort Bravo and is a few miles up the road from Oasys. Turn right out of the gate from Oasys and head toward the town of Tabernas. Just before the bridge take the turning on the right. This takes you under the bridge onto a dirt track which leads to Fort Bravo/Texas Hollywood. The road is very dusty and there are pot holes so take care. The zoo is at Oasys. Sergio Leone's Dollar films were made at Oasys. The Doctor Who episode, A Town Called Mercy, was filmed at Fort Bravo.

The town looks very authentic and is still actively used by film makers unlike Oasys. You can see the whole place in thirty minutes. There's nothing else to do here apart from taking a ride in a horse and cart so the place doesn't make for much of a day out for a family. There is a restaurant behind the saloon. There are log cabins where you can stay the night. It's very expensive though. I'd recommend staying the night in Tabernas itself.

If you are a keen fan of spaghetti westerns go to Oasys and Los Albaricoques. If you are looking for a place to keep the kids amused for three hours go to Oasys.

Try Malcamino's if you want to take an off-road tour of the desert and see where westerns and other films were made.

Having previously visited Oasys Mini Hollywood 3 days before we had high expectations of our visit to Fort Bravo. Price wise, Fort Bravo wins being €38 for 2 adults instead of €48 at Mini Hollywood.

As we walked round we were instantly more impressed with the level of detail and care than had been taken with regards to making the Wild West town look old, rugged and run down. From dilapidated buildings, uneven wooden beams to bits of weathering - this looked like a real cow boy town! Having both worked in the film, television and photography industries we hugely appreciated the amount of work that had gone in to achieving that natural looking old effect. Bravo - Fort Bravo! (Oasys Mini Hollywood, on the other hand, looks brand new and is not fit for filming purposes.)

The size and scale of the town was breathtaking! (It is 4 times the size of Mini Hollywood.) Every street is very photogenic and has views of the epic desert mountains behind.

We much appreciated a cold drink and ice cream in the cool saloon (bar). Many other buildings could not be entered as they are actually facades with Wild West Town and Mexican Village cleverly being placed back-to-back.

An excellent hour or so spent, including a fun cow boy show. Hats off to the performers keeping up their energy in the desert heat! Would highly recommend to filmmakers and anyone who is interested in the behind-the-scenes of film and television.

Would be 5* for me if the price was lower - €12 instead of €19 each would be more reasonable - and if the toilets were more clearly sign posted on the arrival map (they are in the bar).

Guys this place tirned out to be really cool! I was a little afraid it was gonna be a tourist trap but it was totally worth it! The area is just unbelievable, it's just like being in a western. I can't believe this is in Europe! You get to walk around freely as much as you want, we did the horse carriage riding thing and the guy was explaining us what movies were shot there. Then at 12 pm the first show started (there's another one at 3 pm and one at 6 pm I think). So these actors came out on their horses and did an hour long sketch (more on the comedy side), it was hilarious! We had some food there, which was not great...just an overpriced baguette bread, but the staff was friendly and very mindful about disinfection. I know there's that other Hollywood place nearby that's supposed to be similar, but I think the other one is more expensive and more for kids cause it has a zoo. This one's focused on the western movies. There is an open air swimming pool too by the way, included in your ticket. I loved this place so much!

This is not a theme park - it is still a working studio. In face when we visited they were just a couple of weeks from having Joaquim Phoenix shooting there. The setup is really simple - the studios are set in the only desert in Western Europe, near Tabernas. The landscape is amazing and you could easily be in New Mexico or Arizona. The sets include a couple of taverns, a bank or two, a small museum of objects used in the various films. The real stars are the actors who play out the various cowboy 'shows' and if you only understand a little spanish, you will realise they are very tongue in cheek. That's to take nothing away from their fantastic horsemanship. Everything looks pretty authentic. Entrance includes a little horse and wagon ride through the Wild West set and the Mexican set. If you are into Spaghetti westerns you will love it. I would not recommend a full day here though - a morning is probably enough.

We have been coming to Almeria for a few years now and have been frequently visiting 'Mini Hollywood', so as a change we decided to try 'Fort Bravo'. I can honestly say I wish we hadnt bothered. After driving along a very bumpy road for about 1/4 mile. We were then relieved of 63.60 euros (3 adults and 1 child as a child is classed between the ages of 2-11). After that the 'day' didnt get any better. It took us approx 20-30 minutes to walk round and see everything, so we decided to go on the free horse and cart ride, just in case we had missed a huge portion of the place....unfortunately we had covered it all and were utterly disappointed and quite peed off as we had spent so much money getting in only to be there for 45 minutes and the kids already wanting to go home!! We decided to have a drink in the 'Saloon' and again we were robbed in broad daylight!!! Dick Turpin has nothing on these guys!!! We watched the 'Cowboy/Can-can dancers' show and this firmed our resolve to get the hell out of there. All in all the 'day' (approx 3-4hours) cost us in excess of 100 euros. If you were thinking of going to 'Fort Bravo' my advice is, drive a few more kms down the road, spend a little more money and goto 'Mini Hollywood', its a far better DAY out and better value for money.

After doing some googling 'Fort Bravo' seemed like a good place to find out more about the spaghetti westerns that the area is famous for. It was such a disappointment and waste of money. This place could be something great, but there is no imagination and all it is really is a couple of dusty streets with dusty facades. There is very little to see and you are done in ten minutes..... really not worth almost £20 each.
We also stumbled upon where the horses are stabled and at least two were stressed beyond belief (just like lions kept in tiny cages), heads swinging in circles and in stables too small for them to turn. Some of the stables also looked like they hadn't been mucked out in a week, so the horses were ankle deep in their own muck.
Putting the miss treatment of the horses aside, 'Fort Bravo' needs some investment and some imagination..... it needs some signs, some information for visitors, some interesting things to look at (rather than dusty empty shells) and the horses need more space and mucking out!

Absolutely brilliant day out! Yes, it was hot and dusty...No, we didn't understand a lot....but it was fab! 2 shows - one in the saloon, and one outside. Fab music from the spaghetti western films and lots of galloping horses and gun fights - what's not to like?!

Highlight for us was the horse ride around the film set. It doesn't matter if you've never ridden before, as the horses know what they're doing and are happy to walk around. We were surprised that they are the same horses that are used in the show, where they gallop and rear! So the horses are quite fit and not at all 'ploddy', but they are very sweet natured and are very well trained. 15 euros for a 30 min (we got 45 mins) tour of the film set was a real bargain as it was such an experience - you really felt like you were riding in a film. Absolute highlight of our fortnight in Spain.

When we got back to Britain we promptly watched the Dr Who episode 'Town Called Mercy' and realised that our older (Dr Who mad) son had ridden the same horse as Matt Smith - how cool is that?!

We didn't do the cart ride, which is included in the ticket price. After actually riding a horse, it seemed a bit boring to sit in a cart...You can take your own food and drink, which saves some money. You can buy cheap ice lollies in the saloon, which was much needed in the heat.

Quite a few people were there when we went (mainly Spanish tourists) and the staff were very friendly. It's a shame that the western film genre is no longer popular and is virtually unknown to young people now. Full credit to Fort Bravo for keeping the western spirit alive. Our two teenage boys loved it and we've been re-watching the spaghetti westerns since we got back home. If you are in the area, then it's worth heading to the village of Los Albaricoques, which was used for several location shots for the spaghetti westerns. We'd stayed a week in San Jose in Cabo da Gata - the hotel there (Cortijo el Sotillo) was used for the opening scene of A Fistful of Dollars. You can book horse rides from there.

No reason to not feel like a cowboy (or cowgirl?) in this part of Spain!

The sets themselves are pretty run-down but the most disappointing thing as that there's no context set for any of it. There's a list as long as your arm of "related" films but you're left with the feeling that they were all shot somewhere in the region and didn't go near the sets at Fort Bravo at all. If films were set there, then it would have improved the place 100% to show scenes etc for the sets that are there.....and not a "wild west" saloon with a Sky Sports advert blazed across the front of it.
Were there for about an hour and a half and that was plenty
