• Júzcar – el Pueblo Pitufo – the Smurf Village

    Júzcar, el Pueblo Pitufo – the smurfs town (by Landahlauts at flickr)Júzcar is a town in the province of Malaga and it belongs to the mountains of Ronda. The town is now known as the “smurfs town” as it turned from a traditional white Andalusian town to all blue.

    Júzcar had always been a typical white town, very common in Southern Spain, but in 2011 all the buildings of the town were painted smurf-blue by Sony Pictures to celebrate the premiere of “Smurfs” – the movie. This idea was part of the promotional campaign of the movie and by end of year, Sony Pictures offered to repaint the town in white, going back to its old look.

    The citizens of the town voted to leave the buildings blue since thousands of tourists visited the place in the six months that was painted blue when the previous rate was just of 300 tourists per year.  (more…)
