Your travel itinerary could look like...
Arrive in Madrid, head to your accommodation and head out to start your day with a delicious Spanish breakfast to get energised.
A walking tour of Chueca, the vibrant LGBTQ+ neighborhood in Madrid is an ideal way to explore the colorful streets, visit LGBTQ+-friendly shops, and enjoy a coffee or tapas in one of the local establishments.
Visit the historic neighborhood of Lavapiés, known for its diverse and inclusive atmosphere. Discover its lively street art, multicultural restaurants, and unique shops.
At night attend a Pride pre-party or social event to meet fellow LGBTQ+ travelers and locals.
Explore the nightlife in Chueca and experience the bustling LGBTQ+ scene. Enjoy cocktails, live music, and dancing at popular venues like Delirio Live, La Kama, or Club 33.
If you’re visiting over the Pride WE Pride Festival at the end of June, there are some events that are a “must-do”.
Join a guided tour or participate in LGBTQ+-themed workshops and discussions organised as part of Madrid Pride.
The Madrid Pride Parade is the biggest public celebration of the city and the most popular LGBTI+ event in Europe. Considered as one of the best in the world it brings more than 2 million people each year to the streets of Madrid’s centre to continue demonstrating for LGTBI+ rights in Spain and beyond.
Madrid Pride wouldn’t be the same without the traditional High Heel Race, a race – down Pelayo Street, in which participants have to wear high heel shoes of up to 15 cm! In sportswear or wearing a skirt: it doesn’t matter. What has to be there are high heel shoes. As if keeping an eye on their footwork wasn’t enough participants face another challenge: dressing up! There are two stations along the way, giving runners first a dress in a bag and then a lipstick.
If all that wasn’t enough explore the Pride Village at Puerta del Sol, a central square transformed into a lively hub of entertainment, food stalls, and activities. Immerse yourself in the festive atmosphere and enjoy the live performances.
Why not enjoy a lie in after all the parties, and head out for a leisurely brunch at a local café, or even your accommodation.
Time to visit Madrid’s iconic landmarks like the Royal Palace, Prado Museum, or Retiro Park. The City Sightseeing buses are a great way to enjoy them while you rest your feet and listen to the audio guide along the way.
