Gus Fring's underground laboratory
Laundry as a cover
Threatened by the Salamanca family’s actions, Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) dispatches a German engineer and several workers to build a gigantic secret laboratory dedicated to the manufacture of methamphetamine under a laundromat he owns. In Breaking Bad, the laboratory is finally functional and welcomes Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). It is also in Better Call Saul, while the work is not yet completed, the scene of the confrontation between Gus Fring and Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton). The latter, and Howard Hamlin (Ptrick Fabian) lie several meters under the concrete floor.

In the basement of the laboratory
Referenced on Google as the tomb of Lalo Salamanca, this address actually houses a uniform manufacturing plant. In the basements, no drug laboratories. A place invested by the film crews of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, where some of the most tense sequences of the two series take place. It’s a good thing for Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan, the two showrunners of the two series, that between the shooting of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, the location hasn’t really changed. The owners put at the disposal of the film crews not only the walls but also all their equipment such as these famous big blue washing machines. The two men have of course reconstructed the underground laboratory in the studio, still in Albuquerque, where all the sets have been built with meticulousness.
Gus Fring appears in 58 episodes of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.
1617 Candelaria Rd NE
This address, well known to Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad fans as a laundromat, actually houses a uniform factory.
1617 Candelaria road is occupied by Delta Uniform & Linens. It is located north of Albuquerque, near the highway, in the Cervantes district. While the site has become famous in pop culture as the filming location of Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad, it is not open to the public and does not run guided tours.
