Spain’s 3rd largest city, after Madrid and Barcelona. The gay area is concentrated around the old town, in the Barrio del Carmen. It’s said to be a more liberal city than Madrid and Barcelona. The ancient streets contain buildings dating to Roman and Arabic times. The Cathedral, built between the 13th and 15th century, is primarily of gothic style but contains elements of baroque and Romanesque architecture.
