Barcelona in Summer: Gay Travel Tips for Catalonia

A Gay Couple City Weekend Barcelona, the place to be in Europe’s warm South along the Mediterranean Sea. A vibrant city in Spain full of historical treasures like the Casa Milà (La Pedrera), a lively beach atmosphere, the red cable car cabins and a cultural life with museums, opera, and theater. We spent a long gay couple city weekend in the home of Gaudí in summer time exploring Mediterranean cuisine, spectacular views, and unexpected free open-air opera highlights. We didn’t even try to see all of the city since even a long weekend trip is not enough to see all the highlights of the Catalan city of Barcelona. We tried to go with the flow wandering off the tourist tracks through the old town of Barcelona falling into hidden shops, eating delicious ice cream and waiting for the sunset at Barcelona’s beach. It was not difficult to enjoy Barcelona, no, it was an amazing experience for us gay travelers. Tasting the Spanish (gay) life in Catalonia made us hungry for more, for more of the Catalan and Spanish temper, everywhere around the city. Join us gay travel blogger on our Gay Couple City Weekend Barcelona before we went on our one week La Demence The Cruise around the South of Spain visiting Malaga, Cadiz, Ibiza, and Valencia. Enjoy Barcelona through a couple of men’s eyes!

Our Gay Travel Guide Gaudi Architecture Casa Mila La Pedrera – A landmark of pure Modernism. Barcelona is without any doubt the city of Antoni Gaudí, a Spanish Catalan architect of Catalan Modernism. Next to the UNESCO World Heritage Sagrada Familia, one of his most famous creations of Gaudí it the apartment complex Casa Milà. Also known as La Pedrera (the quarry), this civil building was Antonio Gaudi’s last work before dedicating his full energy to built the world famous, Sagrada Familia (estimated finish in 2026). The Casa Milà is one of our favorite buildings in Barcelona and definitely worth the queuing time. Get your ticket and start your discovery with an elevator trip to the roof top of the Gaudí’s building, we enjoyed an amazing view over the city.

Port Cable Car Barcelona: Review of our “flight” with the Red Gondolas of Teleférico del Puerto | Spain

Teleférico del Puerto Port Cable Car Barcelona. A great way to see the beautiful Catalan city from above is by Port Cable Car from the harbor area all the way up to Mirador del Poble Sec (Transbordador Aeri del Port Estacion de Montjuic). The view during our ride was spectacular but also kind of scary since the small red gondola was full of tourists impatient to come to the other side. The trip was definitely worth the long waiting time. But let us tell you more about this special Spanish Barcelona experience. Coming from the beach promenade of Barcelona we discovered the huge tower of the cable car in between palm trees. Heading towards the entrance, we first had to wait quite a while to overcome the long queue. The heat of the Mediterranean sun was cruel, but thanks to umbrellas and ventilators, the waiting time flew by. Also, because it was perfect opportunity to get to know the not only gay travels waiting around us and make some friends. Enjoy the travel story and photos of our cable car adventures through a couple of men’s eyes.
