2006 Orgullo Gay Pride Parade

Madrid is a city that caters for all tastes and inclinations.

Whether you're gay, lesbian or bisexual, there are activities, bars, clubs, and places of interest for everyone to enjoy and share.

Perhaps one of the best-known gay areas in the city is Chueca. This neighbourhood, or barrio, is right in the centre of Madrid, just off Gran Vía. You can get there easily by Metro (Line 5, Chueca Metro station or simply walking from Gran Vía. The streets here are a literal rabbit's warren, so it's wise to get your bearings before you go wandering around.
