Gay and Lesbian Friendly Hotels in Spain
Spain’s liberal politics has given gay people equal rights in the country for marriage, adoption and anti-discrimination protection, one of the first in the world. While that’s some achievement there is still a level of conservatism within Spanish society.
Many cities in Spain hold a gay pride festival including Barcelona (March), Gran Canaria (March), Ibiza (June), Loveball Festival (August) and Canary Islands (May). Madrid has one of the largest gay pride festivals in Europe, which takes place in July. If you’re looking for ‘the gay’ destination then head for Sitges, a gay town in its own right with numerous gay beaches and a gay scene that covers much of the town.
From the historic mainland cities to the clubbing and upbeat islands Spain is a wealth of opportunities for tourists. A popular destination for Europeans and Spaniards between May – October often for package holidays to the Costa Del Sol, Ibiza or Benidorm.
If you really want to explore more than tourist resorts then you should consider visiting ancient and medieval cities of Cidiz or Cordoba or Caceres, or see the architectural work by Antoni Gaudi in the Catalan region, or simply indulge in traditional Spanish tapas or tap to the Flamenco.
Without a doubt Spain’s warm Mediterranean climate, long golden sandy beaches, azure blue seas and laid back culture make this an ideal resting spot.
Chic, relaxed and one of the most liberal cities in Spain, a very progressive country with a live-and-let-live attitude, Barcelona is simply the Gem of the Mediterranean!
Ibiza Town and the Figueretes suburb are hotspots for the gay scene in this Spanish paradise. Gay bars are less frequent than gay-friendly ones and gay-friendly ones are everywhere. Heavyweight DJs spinning at local clubs give gay clubbers plenty of tasty options
Chueca" it out!
