Quarantine: how to travel Madrid from home?

In these days of confinement and quarantine, we are all facing changes. But we have to keep positive. Did you know that the pollution has been reduced by 75% in Barcelona and 57% in Madrid? Italy’s canals are running clear, every day a nationwide round of applause broke out for the health workers on the medical front lines fighting the spread of COVID-19, and we are going back to more solidarity and less individuality.

We have more time to get to know ourselves, to share time with our beloved people, to make those calls that we had to do for so long, to get that old guitar out of the closet, to cook those favorite dishes that take so long to prepare, to do things that we could not even imagine doing it because of the frenetic pace of life we had.

It’s time to think of ourselves! Let us guide you to a virtual trip through Madrid!

Let’s start with a bit of art!

We start our tour with the Golden Triangle of Art in Madrid, which includes the most famous museums in Madrid: The Reina Sofía Museum, The Prado museum and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museum.
