In these neighborhoods most of the religious orders that came to our city settled, which built their convent houses outside of what was the urban nucleus at that time. Also in these neighborhoods or suburbs were located the city's artisan guilds. The names of some streets are still preserved, which honor them (Ollerías, Ballesteros, Meloneras, Jewish Quarters, Vendederas, etc.)

This route offers different starting possibilities, since the route can be started at the Roman Bridge, which although due to its age does not coincide with the creation of the suburbs, due to its location and nature, it is also located outside of what the walled enclosure.
