The dust bowls of the Tabernas desert have doubled as Americas Wild West for over 100 movies. In the 1950's it became one of the main filming locations for movies from around the world and a meeting point for some of the best actors and directors. Many film production companies soon discovered the advantages of this area thanks to the high number of sunshine hours per day.
 
The first to make the area internationally renowned was the director Sergio Leone with his "Dollar Trilogy". Also filmed in the area were the films 'Magnificent Seven', 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade', 'Patton' and 'Lawrence of Arabia'. Mini-Hollywood Theme Park is still used for filming and TV commercials such as 'Milky Bar' and David Beckhams 'Pepsi' commercial.
