I'm a freelance journalist who took off to Madrid for a look-see and enjoy what was on offer while I was there. I was hoping to write a story about Halloween in this once-bustling capital. Considering how fiesta-loving the Spaniards are, All Saints Day cum Halloween should be quite festive. On the other hand, I had to get real. These are unusual times, the Era of the Covid. And I should be prepared to join a terribly watered-down holiday. . . Guess what I found out!

Parks will be closed, but at least only for the night, just three months after their much-awaited unrestricted reopening.

Summer verbenas give Madrid its delightful charm. But this year, they have all been cancelled. Thanks, Corona, you’ve wrought a miracle such as very few Madrileños have ever had to witness in their long history.

Here are some of the places you could still go to and have a taste of the new normal in the nation’s capital with the lingering good old Madrid spirit to underpin it. Surely, the lousy corona can’t put that great spirit down! (Maybe there’s a little sadness, but it won’t be there forever.)

Since 18 February 2020, Madrid folk can go up and down Gran Via on Bus 001 of the Zero Line free! You get to pass stunning avenues along the way. You get another free ride on Bus 002. 002 is dubbed the slowest bus in the nation’s capital, its tortous but historic and titillating route being narrow streets.
