Known as Spain’s “home of the Smurfs,” Júzcar feels like a child’s bizarre fever dream born into reality. This small village is drenched in blue and nothing else, situated in the province of Malaga, about 6 hours south of Madrid by car. As much as we’d like to believe it was fate that made this place all-blue, it was actually a publicity stunt from Sony Pictures promoting the Spanish premiere of The Smurfs 3D. Either way, it looks totally rad. You can probably count the number of streets on both of your hands, but you’ll never be able to comprehend how many cans of blue paint it took to make this place what it is.
