As I was driving up the coast, I saw a sign for Vimeiro. I remembered something about a big battle between the British allied forces and the French, during the Peninsula Wars. I took the turn-off and eventually arrived at the village, which also has a delightful little revamped museum on the battle site.
In the Battle of Vimeiro on 21 August 1808, the British and Portuguese under General Arthur Wellesley (later known as the Duke of Wellington) defeated the French under Major-General Jean-Andoche Junot near the village of Vimeiro. Today, part of the battle site is in the village. You can read more in the history books and Wiki.
Top left: The picture is taken from in front of the museum to the east. Genl Wellesley's forces attacked from here. Somewhat to left, almost on the horizon you should be able to make out a longish white building. That is where the French attacked from. Most of the battle took place in the shallow valley below.
Top right: In the museum garden. thare are a number of these tiled plaques, depicting scenes before, during and after the battle. Here, Genl Wellesley is greeted by someone, with the house where he bivouacked in the background.
Bottom right: A big tiled mural inside the museum. Too big even for the wide angle lens. Red jackets = British. Green = Portuguese. The guys coming in from the left are the French.
Bottom left: The picture shows the typical lodgings of a soldier, in that time period. I don't think each soldier had his own barrel - must be decoration.
