With a population of nearly 3.3 million, Madrid is the largest city in Spain and serves as the nation’s capital. Madrid is located on the Manzanares River and has managed to combine modern architecture with a traditional feel. It is a global city and so, unsurprisingly, it features prominently in Spain’s cultural, political and economic spheres. In Madrid, you will find buildings of historical importance, museums, theatres and other cultural arenas where you can discover more about the city’s identity and its past. It also has a thriving gay scene, and Chueca is a neighbourhood particularly popular with members of the LGBT community, as is Malasaña, an area known for having its own distinct gay identity.
Madrid is therefore an excellent holiday destination, because you can sample the city’s culture and also meet other gay men, drink and socialise. Museum Triangle is the ideal place to start if you are interested in art and history, as there are three main museums including the Museo del Prado; the Thyssen-Bornemisza; and the Reina Sofia, as well as a couple of smaller museums including the Caixa Forum and the Naval Museum.
There are other museums in the city, such as the Museo de América; the Museo de Historia de Madrid; the National Archaeology Museum; the Planetario de Madrid; and the Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales. There are also numerous landmarks throughout the city, such as the Puerta del Sol, a busy plaza where you can see a statue of King Charles III; the Plaza Mayor, where there is a statue of Philip III; the Catedral de la Almudena; the Plaza de España; the Gran Vía; and the Plaza de Castilla.
Plus, of course, there are lots of bars, restaurants and cafés in the city, and if you head to the gay villages in the city, you will find such establishments to be particularly welcoming. The city also plays host to a number of gay events during the year, including Madrid Gay Pride; LesGaiCineMad, an LGBT film festival; Mad Bear, where ‘bears’ come together; and Sleazy Madrid, which has a fetish vibe to it. Clearly, then, Madrid is well worth a visit.
