Resources and Activities

In addition to the exhibition areas, the Interpretation Centre also has a superb view of the battle field. It is also the starting point for the walk On the Path of the Battle of Vimeiro (PR3), a route which covers the most interesting aspects of the battle.

The BVIC also houses a library especially equipped for researchers and students with period publications and works of reference to assist in the study of the Peninsular War, military archaeology, the Napoleonic period etc.

In Vimeiro it is also possible to find a number of buildings which were used for the battle, and several acted as headquarters for the Luso-British officials. Another point of interest is the statue of a soldier of the Peninsular War which “guards” the entrance to the town, in a tribute to the sacrifice of the many unknown soldiers.
