Horatio Nelson defeated. Recreation of the Battle of Tenerife 1797



Every year on July 25, Santa Cruz recreates the Battle of Tenerife - the only battle Horatio Nelson ever lost and the one in which he lost his arm. Hero of the day was Commander-General Antonio Gutiérrez de Otero y Santayana who defended the island and, in gentlemanly manner, allowed the British to leave with their weapons and war honours.
