Chueca (Pronounced Choo-aye-ka) is Madrid's gay village, located adjacent to Gran Vía in the heart of Madrid. Over the last 20 years it has changed from being a run down ghetto where drugs and prostitution were rife and has now, thanks to us gay folk moving in, become one of the most desirable areas of Madrid. (Why do we always do that? We make our own area too expensive for us to live in!)
Chueca is a tightly compact area centered around Chueca Square (Plaza de Chueca) and is easily accessible from Chueca metro station which exits in Chueca Square. One of the first things that is going to strike you is just how gorgeous those young Madrileños are. They are really cute! Another great thing is that age restrictions don't apply in Spain as they do in the UK or North America, that is, you'll see young guys with mature guys all the time and it doesn't mean they are rent boys. It's the way the Spanish are. They don't limit themselves to only going with guys around their own age.
