Campamento de tropas de la Batalla de Almansa
España

Nos encontramos en uno de los campamentos históricos que han formado parte de los actos de la II Recreación Histórica de la Batalla de Almansa.

La batalla de Almansa (1707) se produjo durante el conflicto internacional de la Guerra de Sucesión Española, en la que se enfrentaban dos dinastías europeas, borbones frente austrias. Mas de 20.000 hombres por cada bando llegados de diferentes puntos de Europa se enfrentaron en la villa de Almansa, siendo la victoria final de las tropas borbónicas.

En la actualidad, lo que se conmemora la unidad de todos esos pueblos europeos, y entre los actos que se realizan se encuentra la recreación de la propia batalla. Vista panorámica de la Batalla

Para hacerlo posible se ha contado con grupos de figurantes venidos de distintos paises europeos, perfectamente ataviados, hasta un total de mas de 300 personas con su respectiva caballería y artillería.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
