The British Cemetery in Elvas, Portugal

The only cemetery in the Iberian Peninsula do hold the bodies of men killed in battle during the Peninsular War.

The British Cemetery in Elvas, Portugal, is the one of the oldest British Military Cemeteries in existence. It holds just five known graves, but two of these are the only marked graves of thousands of British soldiers who fell at the Battle of Albuera and another is a memorial to one of the thousands who fell during the three sieges of Badajoz.
