Smurf Village: Spanish Town, Juzcar, Painted Blue To Promote Movie (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Moorish architecture, sherry, flamenco and the famous beaches along the Costa del Sol are just a few of the attractions in the Andalusia region of Southern Spain.

And now it can add Smurf Village to that list.

On Thursday morning, Júzcar, a small town near Málaga, became the world's first Smurf Village.

Sony, the studio behind "The Smurfs 3D", chose Juzcar as the location for the film's premiere and, to celebrate, painted the town blue.

It took a dozen painters and over 1,000 gallons (4,000 liters) of blue paint to transform the village's historic white buildings into blue Smurf houses.

But don't worry if you missed the premiere. You have until September to visit the Smurf Village. After that, Sony will repaint the buildings back to the original white.

Check out some of the pictures and vote for which ones you think are the most Smurf-tastic!
