Gay guide Barcelona

What's not to love about Barcelona. The bustling city of Catalonia located on the shoreline to the mediterranean sea. You get the perfect combination of a city full of culture and pleasure right next to the beach!

It's wildly famous for tourists from around the world visiting the buildings of Gaudi and the nature surrounding the city.

Food is always easily accessible and great on almost any street. Get some pinxos and some cava or sangria and get ready to hit the next bar or club!

The city is very gay friendly so it's no surprise it has become extremely popular!
