Hola chicos! Barcelona is undoubtedly one of the most gay cities in Europe, especially in summer. The fourth most visited European city, the capital of Catalonia has an attractive climate, amazing beaches, and a very festive atmosphere. Independent and rebellious, it rivals Madrid, the country’s capital which granted gay marriage and adoption for gay couples in 2005.
Culture, relaxation, and shopping—The winning trio for any visit to Barcelona! You can easily follow up with a visit to a museum, a swim in the Mediterranean, some shopping on las Ramblas, and an aperitif and tapas before a wild night in Gayxample, the gay neighborhood.
Barcelona is the capital of the Catalan Art Nouveau: The Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, La Pedrera, and Casa Battló are some of the spectacular works by the architect, Gaudi. For museums, you can escape the summer heat by cooling down at the Joan Miro foundation or MACBA, the Museum of Contemporary Art.
With five kilometers of beaches, including the gay beaches of Mar Bella and Barceloneta, and its large parks and wide avenues, Barcelona is a very open and accepting city. You can bear witness to this by taking into account the cable car to Montjuic hill, or viewing the city from Mount Tibidabo.
Given its very open attitude, Barcelona is for the gays. The gay neighborhood, gaixample (Gay + Eixample) is located in the city center. With dozens of gay bars barcelona, restaurants, shops, and saunas are spread throughout the neighborhood, keeping its fun and vibrant atmosphere all night long.
Barcelona is also home to the largest gay festival in Europe the Circuit, which takes place in August with tens of thousands of participants. Other major events include Bearcelona in April and gay pride in June.
