Re: Summer pilgrimage

Hallo!
Finally here are the pictures (I apologize for the delay: problems with imagevenue sad so I had to use another site. I hope it works fine)

The big diorama (4x8 metres) is made of 15000 metal figures casted with Prince August kits; it has a room reserved and the visit costs 7,00 euro per person, or 10,00 for a group; a member of the staff guides and gives you some brief explanation of the battle, in which lots of irish men fought recruited in regiments in the british army... and Wellington was irish too!
