Peninsular war battlefields

Military history is gaining in popularity. More and more books tell us about the deeds of our ancestors, about remote times in nearby places. But until now the battlefields have only been maps in those same books, brightly coloured pages that do not bring us closer to the reality of what happened. We want to uncover those places for you, to transport you to the time when the greatest deeds of arms took place, to make you understand the whys and wherefores. No matter how much you have read or how many maps you have seen, you will not understand a battle until you have stepped on the field. Your perception will change forever.

Nature from a new perspective

The time has come to look up from the stories and go out and explore the places where the events took place. Where until now you have seen land, forests and meadows, you will find defensive positions, hidden terrain and observation points.

The human side of the war

We will learn how the war worked through the testimonies of the combatants, their wives and children, and the locals who lived through it. The history of small details.

“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.
