Locals of Spanish town of Juzcar, set back into the countryside near Malaga, paint every building blue
It is a remarkable image but the formerly whitewashed town of Juzcar is now completely blue after locals all chipped in to paint every building. This unusual activity has been done ahead of the new Smurf’s movie, which will premiere in the small town in July.
It comes at the same time as Jet2.com’s excellent summer flights sale, which offers up to 75% off many summer sunshine destinations, Malaga being one of them.
No Need to Feel Blue When Visiting Malaga
Many holidaymakers use Malaga as a gateway to the more tourist-driven resorts that populate the Costa del Sol but a surge of interest and investment in the city has ensnared many of these visitors.
Juzcar, as a small settlement just outside of Malaga, isn’t known for its tourist activity but its new eye-catching exterior is likely to arouse intrigue amongst those that pass by. In fact the blue aesthetic is so striking it is hard to miss, even from afar.
Those deciding to pay the newly painted blue town a visit will actually find a number of interesting things to see – aside from the blue buildings of course. Santa Catalina is the focal architectural feature, a Sixteenth Century church.
There is a great local atmosphere to enjoy also and, because the town is set into the hillside, it offers some excellent views. Although, make sure you keep your wits about you as the town can double as a bit of a maze, with many streets leading to a dead end.
Of course, Juzcar isn’t the kind of place where you can realistically stay for a whole week, maybe a weekend, so it’s ideal that the plentiful offerings of the Costa del Sol aren’t far away.
Getting There is Even Easier
Jet2.com has announced that the majority of their flight destinations have 75% off at the moment. This means getting to Malaga and experiencing the unique blue town of Juzcar is now even cheaper.
It was also announced earlier in the year that Jet2.com will be extending the number of flights they offer to all leading Spanish destinations. Their Glasgow base will now be flying to Malaga amongst other Spanish destinations in 2012.
It isn’t clear yet if the town of Juzcar will keep its striking blue appearance post premiere but if it does, it will certainly be worth checking out next time you take cheap flights to Malaga.
