Is it possible to go for a ride with the car?
At the moment one can only go by car to a supermarket, pharmacy, bank and/or workplace. From the 11th of May you can move by car within the province. If you go by car in company with other people, everyone inclusive the driver must wear mouth-masks.
Can you leave Spain by road?
Yes, for example, one can return to the UK, Belgium or the Netherlands, but one must remember that the borders are still closed so there will be controls. To travel through France it will be necessary that each person has a document stating the purpose of the trip. This document can be found on the website of each embassy.
