The first town where Wallach is turned in by Eastwood for hanging is not in Spain, but rather a western town set at Elios Studios, near Rome. It was used for many other spaghetti westerns, including "Django" (for which it was given muddy streets!). Info from Glenn

gbu009n. This took me ages to find. One drives past it on the autovia A-92 just south of the turn off to the N-340a. Take that turning for the service station, drive through it onto a dirt road heading southwest then stop before the bridge. best to enter the ramblas always keeping to the right and keep looking back up to the road. However I scrambled over the top from the road to take this. I'm not sure how the film crew managed. SJ
