I'm trying to find a particular movie location from "The Passenger" (also called "Professione: Reporter") by Michelangelo Antonioni. The location in the movie is called Plaza de la Iglesia in San Ferdinando. Locke (main character) and a girl are there to meet someone but nobody shows up. It's a strange and quiet looking village with geometric white houses. Movie location websites also have no idea where it is. All I know it must be somewhere in southern Spain. I'm completely obsessed by this town and want to know where this is and/or if it still exists. Does anybody here know where it is or do you have an idea who I can contact to ask this question? Thanks!

I didn't find the exact location. I also use Peak Finder confronting the mountains in the landscape with Google 3D but nothing.

Wow, it looks a lot like it, but not exactly the same.
But it is in almeria, and i know the movie was shot around that city.
So thanks for the hint!

oh yes!
thank you so much!
Has a completely different vibe with all the green, but the buildings haven't changed much at all indeed :)
