Technically, the Portuguese were not present at this conflict but it does demonstrate the part that the British Navy played in supporting the general uprising in Galicia. Maps of Vigo ca. 1809 are difficult to locate, but Vigo during the Spanish Succession are.

That is an excellent map of the area.
This is from Alamy.com showing the harbour, town and Castle of Castro as it was during the early 18th century.
