Madrid

Any and everything about the fascinating capital city of Spain — and the Autonomous Community of Madrid — from its rich history through its vibrant present to what the future holds, recounted from every angle imaginable.
This category, however, goes beyond Madrid; it embraces stories of what occurred, are occurring, and will probably occur in the Spanish nation whose capital is Madrid.

With Madrid sadly topping the list of Spain’s new positives these days (1535 COVID-19 cases in the 24 hours before 19 August 2020), the city and the region could be trending back to Phase 1 of the de-escalation of the old State of Alarm! 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.

After trying twice, Madrid has finally made it to Phase I of the three-phase easing (desescalada) of Spain’s rigorous COVID-19 lockdown. Three months of almost unrelenting confinement! Then, unbelievably, this Monday, 25 May 2020, Madrid folk are able to savor Spring in their favorite park, the Parque del Buen Retiro. At last! See the Retiro through the eyes of Catherine Petit, Guidepost’s writer from California, who couldn’t love Madrid more if she were a native Madrileña!
