Gay Sevilla Guide

Seville is undoubtedly one of the most captivating cities in Spain. Andalusia’s capital has kept a strong identity, due to its extraordinary history.

This is partly due to its particular geographical position at the south edge of Europe and of Iberian Peninsula. Sevilla offers an exceptionally mild and sunny climate in winter, and summers that often turn incredibly hot.

Handsome hidalgo, flamenco dancers, gypsy singers, brazen-eyed bullfighters, lofty horsemen, and lecherous barbers, those are some of the mythical characters that populate the City, and will feed your fantasies.

Famous for the beauty of its restored palaces, the elegance of its streets, the wealth of museums, churches, and an amazing cathedral, the City is also famous for its unique traditions, such as the Holy Week and the Feria.

The City is full of artistic treasures and its old center is one of the largest in Europe.

Walking throught the Old City

Going from the Cathedral to Macarena, is a full hour’s walk if you take the time to stroll, and stop on your way to enjoy some tapas or have a beer, in one of the charming squares, shaded by orange trees.

Among the must-see sights of the City are the massive Cathedral, the Alcazar, its fantastic gardens, and the Plaza de Toros – an arena purposed for bull fighting shows.

We would recommend visiting two Palaces. First, the magnificent Casa de Pilatos Palace, which combines the art of the Renaissance with the Mudejar legacy. Then the Palacio de las Duenas, which was open to the public just 2 years ago. It used to host one of the most significant and eccentric figure of the City, the Duquesa de Alba, who was more titled than the Queen of England.

The gardens of those two palaces are lovely in spring as in summer, with their walls covered with azulejos and lush vegetation.

The Metropole Parasol, called the Mushrooms by the locals, a giant wooden structure built by the German architect Jurgen Mayer, is a unique place to look out over the City and admire the intertwining of its narrow streets, and the steeples of its many churches, which at one time were minarets.

Gay night life in Alameda de Hercules

The nights are mild, and nightlife concentrates in the district of Alameda, at the foot of Hercules’ statue. Along this vast esplanade, where all the local population of the City concentrates in the evening, from families to drag queens, you will feel far from the Cathedral, and its over touristic streets.

You can start your evening by eating some tapas in one of the many bars and restaurants along the Esplanade.

Then you can go, but not before 2 or 3 am, to Itaca Club, the huge, kitsch, and mythical club of the City. In summer you will have more chance to join one of the outdoors parties.
