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

There has clearly been an effort to improve the information (for the 200th anniversary perhaps) and the 10 boards dotted around give a good overview. You can drive between almost all of them (you have to climb the Greater Arapile though but the view is...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
