About Barcelona

The sheer size of Barcelona’s gay scene is often overlooked by those seeking an LGBTQ+ getaway, but with a diverse collection of gay clubs, a history of radical activism, and a booming LGBTQ+ population, there are few places more suited to a fabulously queer city break. Most of Barcelona's gay bars are littered throughout the Eixample district - also known as "Gaixample".

Eixample is a picture-perfect area of Barcelona’s city center, characterized by pretty balconies, tree-lined avenues, and bustling cafes spilling out onto sun-soaked sidewalks. Eixample’s population is noticeably queer and even more noticeably cool - there’s nowhere like it for world-class people watching. Eixample is also jam-packed with examples of Spain’s 20th century Modernism, making it a popular choice for architecture buffs. 

Just 40 minutes from Barcelona by train, Sitges is often considered to be Europe's gayest town. Sitges is very much geared towards gay tourism, and you’ll find a bounty of gay clubs, bars and adults-only hotels. Combining Barcelona and Sitges is one of the most popular twin-center itineraries for gay travelers, and offers the perfect blend of high-brow cultural stimulation and shameless gay fun.
