As one of the world's largest LGBTQ havens in Madrid, Chueca provides an incredible atmosphere that is both liberal and contagiously fun. It's a must-visit for all LGBTQ travelers and also for anyone who wants to witness some of Madrid's flamboyance and flair. Great place!

Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where
many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where
the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and
people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture
of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses
