Napoleonic battlefields in Spain

Military History is gaining fanatics. More and more books tell us the deeds of our ancestors. Remote times in nearby places. But so far, the battlefields have only been maps in those same books, pages of striking colors that do not bring us closer to the reality of what happened. We want to discover to you these places, make you understand why and show you where. As much as you have read or many maps that you have seen, you will not understand a battle until you have stepped on the battlefield. Your understanding will change forever.

History for all

A pleasant historical immersion with anecdotes and curiosities for people with little knowledge about the period. A day with detailed movements of troops for experts who wish to know the ground where the events on which they have read were developed.

Nature from a new point of view

The time has come to take a break from reading books and go out to explore the places where the events occurred. Where until now you saw lands, forests and pastures, you will find defensive positions, hidden lands and observation points.

The human side of the war

We will know how the war developed through testimonies of the combatants, of their women and children, of the local people who lived it. The history of small details.

Technology shows us the past

To show the past nothing better than to resort to the most advanced of the present. Digital media to see the uniforms, to hear the din, to place ourselves in the contest. To get us into the battle.

“Our visit to Los Arapiles was the highlight of our visit to Salamanca. Raul was an excellent guide to the events of July 22nd 1812 as he combined detailed knowledge of the battle with an infectious enthusiasm. As we walked the Battlefield we could almost see and hear the armies as they marched into position. The sun was setting as we stood at the Memorial stone and we felt we had honoured the memory of all who had fought. Thank you, Raul, for a memorable tour.”
“We thoroughly enjoyed our recent Salamanca battlefield tour with you. Your enthusiasm was infectious. And your detailed knowledge was most impressive. The scale and strategy of the battle came across very well. As did your portrayal of the personnel involved. Altogether engrossing and most informative.”

Each battlefield is unique. Arapiles has nothing to do with Talavera, nor Waterloo with Austerlitz.
