The second golden age, as is the period known as the turn of 1900. It was the time dawned a new era for the city, after the stagnation of the eighteenth century and the economic disaster of the French period. Innovations like trams, telephones, railways and electricity did in scale and specialization.

The city expanded considerably out: first with the nineteenth-century ring around the crowded old city, and in the twentieth century continue with new neighborhoods in South, West and North.

Most of the buildings from that era are still there today. They are the silent witnesses of the dawning of the modern age.
