AAA Editor Notes
Movie Sets (Escenarios) in the city vicinity are permanent fixtures. Durango's heyday as a moviemaking center began in the 1950s and continued through the '70s, as actors like John Wayne, Burt Lancaster and Robert Ryan came here to film Hollywood westerns. Among the classics shot in the vicinity were Raoul Walsh's “The Tall Men” and Sam Peckinpah's “The Wild Bunch” and “Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.” For information contact the Durango State Tourism Office.
Note: These locations are remote and difficult to reach via dirt roads; they should only be visited on a guided excursion arranged through the Durango State Tourism Office.
