“Impressive tour of more than 4 hours inch by inch and and anecdote by anecdote and on the ground the battle. By the hand of Raúl and his first Edecan you can get to imagine each one of the steps and thoughts of the Marshals and Generals during the battle thanks to the detailed knowledge of the time, distance or geographical features of the terrain. I will repeat with another visit without a doubt. Highly recommended”.
