  • The neighborhood of Chueca is very quiet by day and can be covered without problems..... gay area of Madrid par excellence, you notice it by the multicolored flags that hang from the windows, the couples you see walking with total normality and one that another shop of erotic clothing and sex shops..... in this neighborhood you also find many bars and boutiques with quite extravagant and expensive clothes. As soon as it gets dark the thing changes and the atmosphere becomes festive, very bustling and heavily consumed..... rather less safe too. Getting there is very easy, because it is in the center and very close to everything...... there is a metro station in the same Chueca Square. Gay or non-gay Chueca is a place you should go at least once.

  • If you want to experience a pulsating Bezierk, in which gay life is also open and casually visible on the street - go to Chueca. As a Berliner, I was flashed! I wouldn't have expected that.
