Full description
Strategically similar to the Maginot Line (20th Century), the Torres Vedras Lines (19th Century) are the work of the military genie of both Sir Arthur Wellington (later Duque of Wellington and Marquis of Torres Vedras) and the Portuguese engineer, Brigadier Neves Costa. An enormous set of fortifications distributed in three lines from the Atlantic Ocean to the river Tagus with an innovating communications system, assuring the defense of the city of Lisbon.  Visit the evocative exhibition (Torres Vedras Museum) of the Peninsular Wars (1807/1814). Then, make your way to the battle of Vimeiro interpretation center (where the fading of the Napoleon army in the hands of the joint Portuguese/ English army began or play a 9 hole golf course). Before returning to the hotel, visit and taste wine at the Adega Mãe.

    Well done tours of the battlefields!

    An excellent tour of the battlefields. Tiago knew exactly where the best viewing areas were. And his coordination with the local experts will give insight on how important the Portuguese army and her people were to the British forces.
