We are at the middle of the battlefield in one of the acts of the Second Historical Recreation of the Battle of Almansa (Almansa city, Spain).
The Battle of Almansa (1707) occurred during the international conflict of the War of the Spanish Succession, which faced two European dynasties, Bourbons against Hapsburgs. More than 20,000 men from each side came from different parts of Europe met in the town of Almansa, and the final victory was of the Bourbon troops.
Now, we commemorate the unity of all the peoples of Europe, and between acts being made is the recreation of the battle itself.
To make this possible it has been made with groups of participants that came from various European countries, well dressed, for a total of over 300 people with their cavalry and artillery.
