  • Excellent little museum with some interesting maps, weapons and video documentary on the 3 French invasions of Portugal and spirited Anglo-Luso heroic battles. Quite cold in winter so wrap-up warm.  more »

  • 1. Staff and in particular the sergeant major - particularly well informed and helpful 2. Audio-visual items on tablets - e.g. loading and firing a 6 pounder - excellent. Probably very attractive to the modern generation - not just children 3. Original and replica items clearly identified - e.g. dispatch case 4. Suggestions for improvement - a) for interest and publicity - place the audio-visual items on YouTube b) use an animation map of the battle alongside the model c) create an exhibit - modern road map with photographs of visible remains e.g Sula windmill d) let visitors know of the good food at O Moinho.
  • Enough about the French invasions. Everything here is well documented about the power and strength of everything they did to that Portugal was still a nation. The battle of Buçaco and your importance in the defeat of the French. I advise you to visit.
