An Excursion to Juzcar and Setenil de las Bodegas.

Something different.   Juzcar, “Aldea Azul” (formerly known as The Smurf Village),  is a blue village,  very contrasting from the white pueblos of Southern Spain. You will have time to have your photos taken with the smurfs, a wander around the village , a drink in the local bar and buy some blue wine…if you wish. This sleepy village  was chosen by Sony Pictures because of its long mycology traditions. Every autumn, the area surrounding the village is covered with all types of fungi, making it a real paradise for nature lovers and mycologists.

We then  drive to Setenil de las Bodegas, ” The Flintstone Village”.   Houses and shops here are  built under  rock. Free time  to eat in one of the bars or restaurants, wander around the village.  Understand how  these buildings  built into the cliff face have expanded between the boulders and under the overhang of rock over the years.  which shelters this village from the Spain’s sun.

PICK UPS  start at  9.00 Pez Espada Hotel,  9.10 Opp Riviera Hotel, 9.15 Minerva Apts, 9.25 Benalmadena Pueblo, 9.30 El Higueron

Leave Setenil approx 5pm

Price  17.50€    Payment can be made by Paypal.

  1. I am very interested in your days out..in particular, the trip in January to Juzcar and Setenil.However, I live in Playamar…which is On the opposite side of Torremolinos to Montemar.
    I would need to be picked up somewhere near to where there is car parking available….so it would be helpful to have a list of your usual pickup points in Torremolinos !Fuengirola and Benalmadena
    I am the secretary of the Torremolinos branch of Royal British Legion and it may be that some members of our group would also be interested
    Thank you

    1. Hi Hazel,
      I think i have emailed you previously. One of my normal pick up points is The Pez Espada Hotel at Montemar as there is a lot of free parking there. However i am getting a lot of interest from Torremolinos, so am looking at possibly putting a pick up at Torremolinos. Hope this helps
      Kind Regards
      Gill
