Updated: Jul 22

Wellington Defensive Lines in Portugal

Impressive Wellington Lines in Portugal, all along 70 kms

Striking construction, over seventy kilometers, performed in record time by hundreds of thousands of workers. These defensive lines have stopped Napoleon troops, causing their defeat and withdrawal to France.

What is absolutely unbelievable is how it was possible to build a monument of this dimension in complete secrecy. In fact, the defensive lines were a total surprise to Napoleao's huge army on their way to Lisbon.
