Whilst in Spain, I would recommend visiting Juzcar which is about an hour north of Marbella. Sony commissioned the villagers to paint the town blue. Sony had promised to paint it back to its original colours, but it attracted enhanced tourism numbers so the villagers asked Sony if they could leave it. [AFG_gallery id=’25’]
This is a photo of Juzcar in Spain. Sony painted it blue to promote the release of the Smurfs film. Locals don’t want Sony to paint it back as it has increased the number of tourists to the village. Worth a visit but the drive there is scary!
