Perfide Francais!

According to the sign at Cape Trafalgar, the defeat of the Franco-Iberian fleet was entirely caused by the French commander losing courage and turning his part of the line-of-battle around in mid-attack.

Though the Spaniards also consider Francis Drake to have been a state-funded terrorist, so this sort of difference of opinion over the regrettable events of 1500 to 1900 is probably to be expected.

It's a nice walk from Conil down the beach to Trafalgar; all kinds of shell that you could possibly desire, and we saw a baby turtle about the size of a macaron.
