Why you should go to Madrid !

Madrid is not only one of Europe's most gay-friendly cities but one of the best for nightlife, culture and dining. Chueca, Madrid's gay neighborhood, is a major destination for the local and international LGBTQ community with a legendary gay scene that includes an abounding selection of restaurants, bars, saunas and clubs.

Although fully welcome and accepted throughout the city, Chueca is where the local LGBTQ community has carved out a vibrant center with hundreds of gay-oriented businesses.

The city's Gay Pride celebration - and biggest party of the year - brings together two million people from all over the world during the first week of July and has grown into a major festival for the city. Not only popular with the LGBTQ crowd, activities center around Chueca with live concerts and parties, including the famous stiletto race at Calle Pelayo.

The beautiful El Retiro park and the Reina Sofia museum are two of the finest attractions anywhere. As well, Madrid's distinct neighborhoods are wonderful to explore on foot. It is one of my favorite cities to visit.
