Gay Bilbao travel guide

The Guggenheim museums are on the bucket list of many gay guys. Bilbao  has one of the few, so this makes it automatically a gay destination.

Most of Spain gets very hot in summer.  Bilbao is situated near the coast of the Gulf of Biscay and is a little cooler. In summer night life is very outdoors with many terraces.
