Visit to Busaco

This week Walking Napoleonic Battlefields covers our visit to Busaco. Despite starting badly, it was raining and we could see nothing due to the heavy fog, this turned out to be one of our more memorable visits.

The battlefield covers a large wooded area, but the important sights are all marked and easy to find. And most give very good views of the important sections. It was easy to find the villages and command posts.

But our favourite, adn most memorable, was the spot where "Black Bob" Crauford ordered the light division forward to defeat the first French attack.
