Barcelona, Spain

The Spanish city of Barcelona is a truly beautiful city. The main gay and lesbian area of Barcelona is called L'Eixample (it's pronounced eye-sham-play), located in the north west of the city. L'Eixample has many gay and lesbian bars and clubs to suit all tastes.

Everything seems to happen later in Spain than in other European countries. Spaniards usually eat late (around 9pm or 10pm). The bars don't get busy until around midnight and stay open until about 3am, when the gay clubs (or discos as they are locally called) open. The clubs stay open until around 5am or 6am. I would recommend having a sleep before you go out so you can party all night, if you want to.

Opened in 2007, Barcelona has a fast, efficient and modern Metro system to transport you around the city.

The coastal resort of Sitges is located about half an hour away on the train and well worth a visit while you are in Barcelona.

Barcelona is located in the Spanish region of Catalonia. This region has two native languages, Spanish and Catalan. This often means that the locals of Barcelona are not fluent in English, therefore I recommend taking a Spanish phrase book.

Overall, I would definitely recommend a vacation in Barcelona during the summer months.
