Gay Couple Travel Guides Spain – We love to travel around the South European country Spain as one of the most gay-friendly countries in the world. In Spain, same-sex marriage (also known as gay marriage) is legal in Spain since 3rd July 2005. Additional to that, it is offering a diverse cultural heritage from traditional Spanish villages in the mountains to modern gaycation sun destinations at the Mediterranean Sea with white beaches and turquoise water. Although we did not manage to visit the Spanish capital Madrid together so far, we were able to visit the Catalan city Barcelona, the holiday city Málaga, the beautiful island Ibiza and the Canary Islands during our Gay Cruises with La Demence.
And there is so much to see, to explore, to taste and to feel in Spain! Especially Daan falls for the delicious often vegetarian Spanish food every time again. And Karl loves to walk hand-in-hand along the beaches watching the sunset over the Sea. Important to know is the Spanish temper of the people that sometimes feels like a fight but is just a normal conversation. And plan in some extra time for the lunch breaks, since Siesta is traditionally an important part of daily life during the hot noon hours. Spain is a wonderfully open-minded country for sun and summer holidays offering even some adventure time in the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the region of Andalucia or some exciting hikes around the caldera of the volcano islands La Palma, Lanzarote or Gran Canaria.
Our bucket list for us as a Gay Couple traveling Spain is still filled with great destinations within mainland Spain and the surrounding islands. Top of our list are the cities Madrid, Valencia, Sevilla, Bilbao but also a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. And do not forget the Gay Ski Week in the Spanish Pyrenees of Lleida at Ski Area Boí Taüll. Step by step we will explore more cities and we hope our Gay Couple Travel Guides Spain will be an inspiration for your trips to the Kingdom of Spain on the Iberian peninsula.
