Barcelona opens beaches and parks
Barcelona opened its beaches and parks for walks, in a slight relaxation of the confinement in the second city of Spain, heavily hit by the coronavirus.
The beaches of this tourist city were already available for sports in the morning, from this day they are open from 06:00 to 20:00 for walks on the sand.
Parks that still remained closed, such as Park Güell, designed by the famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí.
"Let's enjoy the beach in a responsible way. Let's remember that recreational bathing, sunbathing on the sand, or playing sports in a group is not allowed," the city police tweeted.
From time to time a message sounded through the speakers installed on the beach, reminding that "recreational bathing or staying on the sand sunbathing is not allowed".
Barcelona and Madrid, as well as parts of Castilla y León, a region north of the Spanish capital, the areas hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic, have not yet begun the de-escalation of confinement, established on March 14. 70 percent of Spaniards have done so.
