Gay Apartment Barcelona

Barcelona is truly a gay-friendly city and a popular gay destination within Europe. Why? Several reasons. For one, gay marriage has been legal since 2005, making it the third country to legalize it. Gay couples enjoy equal status and their union is quite accepted in Spanish society. In 2014 Catalunya also passed an anti-homophobia law, harshly fining individuals who physically or morally offend members of the LGBTQ community. Insulting someone for their sexual preference is punishable by up to €140,000. Barcelona is also a very dynamic city with tons of gay-friendly activities all year round, including gay cinema festivals, LGBTQ literature festivals and the annual Circuit Festival, the biggest Gay Festival in Europe.

Barcelona even has its own gay neighborhood (Gayxample, from the original name Eixample) with the city´s highest concentration of gay and lesbian bars and nightclubs. Over the past few decades several gay individuals and couples have sought residence in this historical neighborhood, known for its emblematic architecture, wide shopping boulevards and fantastic restaurants. This central neighborhood and the regions surrounding it are great for finding the perfect Gay Apartment Barcelona.

With so many fantastic LGBTQ establishments and activities, it´s no wonder that Barcelona has become in the past few decades one of the most popular “gaycation” capitals of Europe. And, especially in Eixample, it´s not uncommon to spot proud rainbow flags waving in the wind near each Gay Apartment Barcelona. If staying in Barcelona for more than just one day, we recommend a day or weekend trip to the picturesque coastal city of Sitges, known throughout Spain for its abundance of gay beaches, bars, nightclubs and events. We have plenty of apartments in Sitges to choose from and, as the city is just a half hour from Barcelona by train, we recommend it as an excellent getaway.
