Los extramuros

I am currently reading an article about a fiesta in Pamplona. There's this "los extramuros" extracting from Latin it would be translated to "everything outside the walls". I guess it's referering here to toros being haunted through the streets (outside the walls of every building; explaining why extramuros is used). Am I right? Any other suggestions?

I think your guess is correct.



extramuros.
(Del lat. extra muros, fuera de las murallas).
1. adv. l. Fuera del recinto de una ciudad, villa o lugar.

It will be good to have the whole sentence, a bit of context to really ascertain the best interpretation.

The sentence is "Los encierros nacieron por la necesidad de trasladar a los toros desde los extramuros de la ciudad al coso taurino para que allí pudieran ser toreados."

Though, as JPablo says, the extramuros are what is outside the city's walls like the Basílica de San Pablo Extramuros in Rome, in Spain it also means outside the city itself (what is called "fuera del éjido urbano" in Argentina, from ejido -without stress mark- the non agricultural surroundings of a town)

I think the meaning may vary slightly from city to city depending on the city's history. In Valencia there is a barrio called Extramurs, so unless the context provides a strong hint otherwise I would understand a Valencian talking about extramuros to be referring to that barrio.
