Atmosphere in big cities Cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Valencia and Seville, among others, are good examples of Spain's tolerance and open character. Furthermore, in Madrid and Barcelona there are areas specifically frequented by the LGTB community. In Madrid, this would be the Chueca quarter, which is located quite centrally. While in Barcelona it is the Gaixample, between the calles Balmes, Gran Via, Urgell and Aragó. In both cases, these areas bring together a large part of the most alternative culture and fashion, as well as gay-friendly bars. Main coastal destinations Think about Spain's sun and good weather. Imagine days on the a Mediterranean beach or wide-open sandy areas on the ocean. Add a gay-friendly atmosphere, lots of cultural options and an exciting night-life. If you like the combination, you should visit Spanish destinations like Sitges, Maspalomas and Ibiza.
