A vibrant gay scene, sun-drenched sandy beaches and buzzing nightlife combine to make Barcelona one of Europe’s top gay hotspots.
Gay Barcelona is centred in and around the l’Eixample area, also known as Gayxample. It’s near here that you’ll find the largest concentration of gay shops, bars and clubs. A highlight on the LGBT calendar is the annual gay pride Barcelona festival around late June or early July.
To top it all off, you can relax in the gay beach of la Mar Bella, not far from the famous Barceloneta. You can even visit the famously gay-friendly town of Sitges, which can be reached with a 35-minute train ride from Sants central train station.
