For those Expats who used to watch the BBC's first rendition of Expats in the Spanish Sun soap - Eldorado and wondered whether the town exists.

The good news is the fictional town of Los Barcos is alive and well and situated near Coin, west of Malaga.
The town, specially created as a set for the BBC series Eldorado - shown on prime time TV from July 1992 to
July 1993 is still there but now used as a paintball combat village.

For those Expats unfamiliar with Eldorado - here's the first 3 episodes.

There is a Facebook group dedicated to this show and from what they said it's closed off because a firm has got it and use it for paint balling.Been round a couple of times when it was open to the public and have quite a few photo's of the place.But you will always get people who think it is a load of rubbish.I know one who springs to mind.

Well it would make a great film set location for the launch of a new series of The Prisoner. Just think, Los Barcos
becomes The Village in the The Prisoner.
