Coimbra
October 1810.
After the Battle of Busaço, Massena did what he could have done earlier, and marched around the north end of the ridge.
Wellington pulled back to the prepared defensive positions at Torres Vedras.
Massena, ignorant of those defensive positions, entered Coimbra on 3rd October in pursuit.
The Bishop's Palace at Coimbra where Massena stayed.
This is now a museum.
