Despite being a primarily Catholic country, Spain has some of the most forward-thinking and enlightened laws in Europe regarding the freedoms and rights of homosexuals. The country saw its first same-sex marriage in July 2005 and boasts a flourishing gay community with some of the most popular gay districts in the world.

Here is a selection of some of our top gay friendly bed and breakfasts in Spain.
