FAQ's ABOUT GAY FRIENDLY HOTELS IN LISBON

  • Why travel to Lisbon?
  • Frequent travelers to the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, know that it’s one of the world’s most gay-friendly cities. And that’s to say nothing of Portugal in general.
    Unlike even countries like France, Spain, or Italy that are quite progressive in this area, the country of Portugal is one of the strongest in the world in terms of LGBT rights.

  • What are the most important holidays & closing days?
  • The most important holidays and closing days in Lisbon are those dates that reflect the doings of the city and the people living there.
    Every year, millions of people flock to Lisbon to celebrate and have fun during the city’s special events. Also, the city hosts the annual Carnaval (5 days before Easter) and the popular Primavera Sound Jazz Festival (3 days before Easter). What’s more, the country’s greatest gay pride parade takes place every year on the last Sunday of June, and the city hosts the International Film Festival every autumn.
    Another year is coming to a close, and that means that Lisbon’s main tourist attractions are about to close their doors for the year. While the city is still bustling during December, it is not quite as bustling as it is during the summer, which is why many of the city’s main attractions like the famous Baixa, the Botanic Gardens, and the Boi Bar are closing their doors for the winter.
    This doesn’t mean that Lisbon residents will stop enjoying the city, and most of the city’s famous landmarks will be open until the end of the year. Still, we will have to wait until January when the city’s main attractions will open again.
