Walking Napoleonic Battlefields


Poco Velho is not one of the better known Napoleonic battlefields, but it is well worth a visit. The village lies three miles south of Fuentes de Onoro, and was held by two battalions of the newly formed 7th Division on 5 May 1811 when Marshal Massena launched his flank attack on Wellington battle line.
