Northern Spain Travel Stories

The Following blog post is brought to you by Alojamientos Rurales Alpujarras

Spain welcomes gays with open arms. It was one of the first countries to openly acknowledge and allow gay marriages and provide them with all the legal rights as a straight marriage. The country also allows gay couples to adopt children and babies with no reservations. These liberal and accepting viewpoints have made Spain a wonderful choice for a safe fun getaway for gay couples and singles.

Of all the cities to visit in Spain Barcelona stands out due to its wonderful architecture and art. It boasts a vast array of restaurants, bath houses, and night life. The most exciting area of Barcelona for gays is probably L'Eixample but this is only one small area. The entire city is alive with excitement, history, and beauty.
