Well, the city of Almería has been used as the location for a number of films including 'Patton' (1969) and 'Never say never again' (1983).
The Alcazaba has been used to film Conan the Barbarian,
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,and Never Say Never Again

used as a film location in the films "Patton" and "Lawrence of Arabia"
However, I was thinking more of the province of Almería especially the Tabernas Desert and the Cabo de Gata. Many films were shot here including Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns starring Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef and others. 'Cleopatra'(1963), 'Lawrence of Arabia' (1962), 'How I Won the War' (1967), 'Conan the Barbarian' (1981), 'The Empire of the Sun' (1987) and 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade' (1989) are some of the more well-known films made in this area.
