The Basque Country, everything you are looking for and more

Cities Events LGBTQ+

The Basque Country is internationally renowned for its beaches, mountains, valleys and magical natural landscapes, which make the small country an idyllic destination for practically any type of tourist who visits it.

For those looking for a more cosmopolitan type of tourism, especially focused on nightlife (and with an important mention of the LGBTQ+ community), the Basque Country is not far behind.

1. The Basque Country offers you the perfect night out

Many of the community's most visited cities are home to some of the most welcoming and welcoming neighbourhoods recognised by LGBTQ+ travellers. Bilbao is home to some of the most famous, such as Bilbao La Vieja or the San Francisco neighbourhood. Decades-old venues welcome the most diverse clientele imaginable every night, specialising in respectful, tailor-made treatment for those who need to feel at home. 

Whatever you're looking for, Bilbao has it: from the electronic music nights at places like El Balcón de la Lola to the drag and cabaret shows at Badulake, the legendary theatre-bar that, for over 13 years, has been home to the legendary Las Fellini troupe, true icons of queer culture across the country. The Korrala, on the other hand, is another of the city's most popular LGBTQ+ party venues. Other venues such as Enigma, Heaven, Bar Modesto or Manolita la Primera complement the Bilbao nightlife to satisfy those who are interested in having a drink on a terrace in the best and most pleasant company, or in closing the night after having lived a real adventure (counting, in addition, for the more daring, with the existence of two famous saunas: Element and EGO).

It is not only Bilbao that offers fun and entertainment for nightlife lovers: Donostia / San Sebastián also has well-known bars, pubs and discos such as Dionis and Zikuta.

In short, whatever your idea of a perfect night out, the Basque Country offers you the chance to experience it surrounded by the best atmosphere, with the greatest security it has to offer and with the guarantee that, whatever the case, you will take home a good memory.
