CITIES

BARCELONA

Thanks to its location between the sea and the mountains, Barcelona has found a perfect balance: a foot in the traditional things and the other in the postmodern. Barcelona has the reputation of being the most cosmopolitan & trendy city in Spain, and probably in Europe! Since it was completely renewed for the 1992 Olympic Games, the city has become a must for all around the world travelers!

But Barcelona is much more than Gaudi’s universally celebrated architecture, more than a sophisticated, massively multicultural city, more even than one of the world’s iconic cities. It’s easy to get wrapped up into the Spanish way of life in this city and that’s why we start and end our Spain trips here!  Besides being a famously gay “must see” city with countless nightlife options, Barcelona also has that “beach city” feel and a “siestas and fiestas” attitude.  Whether you’ve come to immerse yourself in the culture that surrounds each city block, mark your spot on the stunning gay beach, dive into the endless gastronomy scene, or get to know the locals, Barcelona is ready for you.

It is even more than a city with a perfect combination of a warm Mediterranean climate, beaches within and close to the city, mountains in the hinterland and the culture, nightlife, sights and infrastructure of a European metropolis!

For gay friendly and gay travellers Barcelona has been one of the favourite destinations in Europe for the last twenty years. The city has this The center of Barcelona’s gay scene is in the Eixample district ( sometimes called the Gayxample neighborhood, or “Gaixample” in Catalan ) with most of the gay bars, hotels, restaurants and shops in Barcelona.

MADRID

The capital of Spanish language, Madrid is short of nothing; whether you’re a sun seeker, a culture & foodie lover or both. What Madrid lacks in beaches and coasts it makes up for in art galleries, streets lined with Spain’s best tapas bars, large open verdant gardens and a city atmosphere that never decreases no matter the time of day, week or month!

Through its never ending labyrinth of streets, crossroads and endless laneways, Madrid is the perfect city to find the most intimate settings. Discover a city rich in centuries of history. Madrid is happy, open, multicultural and vibrant during the day, enchanted by night.

This city is one of the new hot gay destinations in Europe. The bars and clubs are all located close to each other in Chueca,a suburb located in the old quarter at the center of Madrid. It’s a tightly compact area, actually two areas a short distance apart.“Madrileños” like all Spaniards tend to party late, going out to eat at 10pm, hitting the bars at 1am. and on to the discos about 4am.

The Gay Pride Madrid is one of the biggest and most popular gay events in Europe. The parade in the very center of Madrid – with more than 3 million participants and visitors – became the hottest and most colourful gay pride parade Europe had ever seen. Madrid will host World Pride 2017!

SEVILLE

We have a well-known saying in Spain: Seville has a special colour! The sheer joy of its people, its international reputation as the cradle of traditional tapas, its flamenco soul and year-round sunny days make Seville a welcoming, vibrant and beautiful city!

We can guarantee that Seville is one of the most beautiful cities you’ve ever seen! There’s a reason visitors fall in love with this Andalucian city that’s full of life and a contrast of old and new. It’s a city of football, history, romance, tapas, sangria, dancing, and culture. Hit the streets to soak in the atmosphere at the Plaza de España, head inside to the Alcazar or the famously grand Cathedral, get cultural with live local theatre and dancing, or take a day trip to the vineyards or a nature tour. We’re here for 3 nights of everything Andalucian so whether you’re a “do as much as you can” traveler or more of the laid back and “take it all in” type, Seville won’t limit you.

Our daytimes will generally be spent exploring and adventuring while our evenings are the time for taking in the memorable culinary scene and social life. The majority of the gay scene here in Seville is outdoor and flows from one establishment to the next, making for a fun social mood and a great place to meet the locals.

Visit Sevilla with Spain Seven Degrees

RONDA

Ronda is located in the Málaga region sits on either side of the Tajo del Ronda, a narrow gorge more than 150 meters deep. Celts, Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs all inhabited these lands, which were eventually reconquered by the Catholic Monarchs. Ronda still preserves its walls and the most important gates which gave access to the city. It is famous worldwide for its dramatic escarpments and views, and for the deep El Tajo gorge that carries the rio Guadalevín through its centre. Visitors make a beeline for the 18th century Puente Nuevo ‘new’ bridge, which straddles the 100m chasm below, for its unparalleled views out over the Serranía de Ronda Mountains. There is no gay scene in Roda but is worth it to visit.
