Salamanca Battlefield Tour
On July 22, 1812 the multinational army of the then Earl of Wellington, composed of British, Spanish, Portuguese and Germans, faced the Armée du Portugal de Marmont, Marshal of the Empire and personal friend of Emperor Napoleon I.
The French had been maneuvering with skill for more than a month, to the point that they had pushed back the Allies from the banks of the Duero. Wellington would be forced to return to Portugal if he failed to win a decisive victory. Marmont knew it. Would the Earl be able to go on the offensive?
Once you have made the reservation, we will tell you the meeting point
We will make the tour by car, because the battlefield is too big to walk. We will stop in several places to know the point of view of both the Allied and French sides
We will visit the interpretation classroom located in the village of Arapiles, with a model with more than 5000 miniatures
We can watch the troops positioned on the same spots where they were the day of battle using this latest technology
It is time to comment on the visit and enjoy a well-deserved rest
We said goodbye (until our next tour!)
