Wellington also fought Napoleons army in Portugal.
The fortress of Badajoz underwent many sieges.. the 1812 seige was one of the bloodiest of the Napoleonic wars. It was considered a costly victory by the British.
It was also once a small Muslim Kingdom.
So dear friends.. that was my little trip to Arronches and Badajoz.. So much to see there.. it warrants another visit.
Iberia has such an interesting history. I hope you enjoyed this little write up.
Happy summer days to you all.
