More than 31,000 same-sex couples have tied the knot across Spain since a law permitting gay marriage was introduced in 2005. To mark the anniversary, here are ten of the best places in Spain to celebrate your nuptials.


Today, as the world is still toasting the United States’ decision to legalise same-sex marriage, Spain is celebrating a whole ten years of its own groundbreaking gay marriage amendment.

In the last decade LGBT couples have wed in venues across the country - cities, beaches, mountains, islands - and so gay weddings in Spain are becoming ubiquitous in this once traditional Roman Catholic nation that was ruled by a fascist dictator until 1975. 

To mark the anniversary of one of the nation’s proudest moments, The Local rounds up the very best places to get married in Spain.
