San Miguel is the primary town featured in A Fistful of Dollars.
It's a border town which during the events of A Fistful Of Dollars is under control of two families, the Rojos and the Baxters. Both aim to take over the city and are in constant conflict. When "Joe" arrives in town he takes advantage of the situation to make money. There's a saloon owned by a bartender called Silvanito. There's a coffin-maker, called Piripero. The town has a wide, almost plaza-like street with a small water tower. The Rojos' house and the Baxters' house face each other. Some of the buildings in the village are made of wood, while others are made of white adobe-plaster.
- The filming location for the main street was Hoyo de Manzanares, near Madrid. The scene where Joe rides into town was shot at Los Albaricoques, while the house where Marisol is kept prisoner is Cortijo El Sotillo, near Cabo de Gata.
