Abstract: The present work aims to reconstruct and interpret the urban fabric of the main cities in Spain in order to understand their urbanisation processes during the 19th and 20th centuries. Using the technological innovations that took place during this period, these cities escaped the confines of their walls and spread outwards in a process that saw the sustained growth of transport networks and urban services. The main objective of this research is to interpret this phenomenon and to classify it in terms of its geographical, demographic, political and regional characteristics.
