Walking Napoleonic Battlefields

This weeks visit is to the Portuguese walled town of Obidos, the scene of the first shots to be fired in the Peninsular War.

This lovely town is a very popular tourist attraction in its own right, and I don't suppose many of the visitors have any idea that it played a part in the fight against Napoleon.
