Château de Salses, Salses-Le-Chateau

Spaniards built Château de Salses, a Catalan fortress, in the 15th century to guard the border between France and Spain. The architecture and layout of the fortress represent an unusual example of the design transition between the classic medieval castle and the fortresses of the modern era. French forces captured the fortress in 1642, and it was used as a refuge during the Spanish Civil War. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Salses-Le-Chateau using our trip planner.

    An interesting visit insofar as this fortress of the 15th and 16th century is the link the link between the fortresses in the middle ages Dungeon and designed by men like Vauban. A fortress reflecting also a time where the Roussillon was... Spanish.
