Pamplona is an example of what happened in most of the Spanish cities during the XIXth century. The wall is demolished for most of its area. Here it still exists on the western flank and in the southwest citadel; it still exists also in the area facing the river, as there were no growth pressures there. A wide connection avenue with the Ensanche was created.
