Spain seems to be the home of events where people get injured. But at least, there are no animals involved in this one. Just a very odd, but also a weirdly amazing event.

If Smurfs were real this is where they would live. This small but beautiful blue village was originally done as a marketing stunt but they soon realised it look nice and could be used to attack tourists, which indeed it does.

El Caminito Del Rey

1 – Málaga
www.caminitodelrey.info/en

Translated as “The King’s Little Pathway” this is a walk on the wild side with drops that would make your heart skip a beat and glass walkways that will test the bravest of people. If you want to do something a little more unusual while in Spain this has to be it.
