Judge people in the Serrania de Ronda
My family and I were there, like every January 1 in Juzcar, a small town in the Serrania de Ronda, we went sightseeing. Every day January 1, we have the tradition of leaving early in the morning - when there is almost no one on the roads - and we go to "different" places. This year it was Júzcar's turn.
It is a small town in the Serranía de Ronda, - cradle and scourge of the French in the Napoleonic wars by the bandits. We climbed from the coast along the road from San Pedro de Alcántara to Ronda (A-397), stopping at a picnic called “Los Madroños”, funky people to be 11 in the morning of a first of January. The road is hard and you have to be careful not only with it because of its curves and unevenness but with the occasional “armed head” (say cuckold behind the wheel) that you think is Rally.
Well we went there so that my wife's mother could go to her grandmother's town. The truth is that it was the excuse, we were struck by the fact that a beautiful Andalusian “white town” had become a “blue smurf town”.
The road promised when we left the A-397 and took the MA 7308, it reminded me of the Chio (Tenerife) road and at times the odd road of Galicia. Narrow, very narrow ... The firm is fatal, but in the end we arrive, it is worth it, really. A clean, blue town. The houses are confused with the sky. Wonderful! In addition the road was full of the leaves fruit of this late autumn that we suffered ... A Joy!
The truth is that the Juzcareños have appeared to all the saints and have known how to "paint the Altar well." Someone from Sony Entretenaiment entered the town through the right eye and took it as a promotion for the summer-cut movie “The 3D Smurfs” (these are the saints) Sony spent 9,000 kg of blue paint and changed the image of the town, Well that and that gave work to the only 12 unemployed I had (Good!).
The Juzcareños took advantage of international dissemination and news coverage of and developed an interesting business model. Take advantage of what others have done and benefit from it. I am happy that I did not know that Juzcar was founded in the Arab era and that the first tin factory in Spain was on its land.
Regardless of my corrosive sense of humor, I have to say that they are open, friendly people and that they will welcome you with open arms. The bar that is in the Torrichela viewpoint, they treat you well, very well it is also not expensive and the quality is good, although you may lack some variety. I hoped they had crumbs or a garlic stew, but the "smurfs" and skewers they had were tasty and appetizing ...
Approaching the church square, there is a “Smurf” market and a Mushroom museum (this has nothing to do with the Smurfs)
A recommended trip, but since you are in the area do not miss passing through Paraula or Cartaima.
