The glacis – the large areas of land free of all buildings that surrounded Renaissance citadels on the outside of their defences, were – in the case of Pamplona and once the military fortification had lost its military function – transformed into a large English-style park: the Vuelta del Castillo. The moats that surround the different defences outside the Citadel are at a lower height to the glacis. It is now common to see the locals enjoying this large, central green space in our city: that comprising the Vuelta del Castillo and the moats.
