Must visit for Peninsula War interested parties . Be careful museum open very selectively . But battle fields so interesting for enthusiasts . However a few walks needed to apppreciate the battle grounds
One of the best Napoleonic battlefields to see. You get an excellent panoramic views of the whole battlefield from atop of the greater Arapille. Be prepared to walk and take plenty of water on a hot day. It is also worth navigating to the top...More

A must-see for anybody interested in the Peninsular War (in Spain, the War of Independence) or in military history generally. This is where the Battle of Salamanca (for Spanish people, the Battle of Arapiles) was fought, one of Wellington's most masterly victories, and crucial to...More
