San Francisco


California

Castro neighborhood

'The Castro' is a term broadly used to describe the area of San Francisco formerly known as Eureka Valley, and is bordered by Diamond Heights, Noe Valley, the Mission, the Fillmore, and the Haight districts.

It has also come to mean more than a locale. Much of the gay and lesbian community of San Francisco lives and works in the Castro.

It is known world-wide as the "gay mecca." Home to an ever-changing neighborhood of shops, restaurants, street fairs, and residents, the Castro has continued in its evolution.

It is a community and a people rich with history, diversity, tears, and laughter.
