Patroc Bilbao Gay Guide 2021

This page collects all the information from the previous pages and is more convenient if you want to print out or use a complete gay guide for Bilbao.

On desktop PCs you can also print out your own preselection instead of the whole list: just double-click on the name of the hotel or location that you would like to remove, and the whole entry for that location will disappear.
Same with sections: double-click on a section title (for instance ›Saunas‹) to remove the whole section. If you are not happy with your selection and want to start all over again, just reload this page.
