A western set is built here because a lot of movies were and are shot in this region. Mini Hollywood or Oasys is a Spanish Western-styled theme park. Originally known as Yucca City, the set was designed by Carlo Simi and built for Sergio Leone’s For a Few Dollars More in 1965. It was also used as a set for other films, such as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966). After filming of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly was completed, the extras in the project bought the set and ran it as a tourist attraction. They were later bought out by a hotel group. The park features daily cowboy stunt shows, such as a mock bank raid and a re-enactment of the final moments of Jesse James. It also has a zoo with birds and big cats in cages. The Doctor Who episode “A Town Called Mercy” (2012) was filmed here and at Fort Bravo/Texas Hollywood.
