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

I site I had long wanted to see - and I wasn't disappointed. The interpretation centre (and related signage and info boards around the area) were excellent. The battlefield is very clearly seen from the top of the Great Arapile - not at all hard...More

We were amazed at how the battlefield area South of Salamanca appeared to be more or less as it must have been 200 years ago - few new roads / buildings etc... There are some very informative noticeboards around the battlefield showing what happened when...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
