The village located 20 kilometers from the town of Ronda in southern Spain has adopted four years ago the blue color for each house in order to promote the movie “The Smurfs”. Until then being in obscurity, this brainwave transformed Juzcar into a rustic paradise for tourists.


You can serve a portion of rural life in Spain spiced with Malaga wine and traditional recipes. At 20 kilometers, Ronda, the city suspended on the rocks, is waiting for you to visit it leisurely, tourist attractions being represented by the corrida arena, Arab baths and Moor King Palace.
