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.

  • Good fortress. Worth a visit. Guided tour was good but all in french and lasted a long time. Kids got a bit bored at this point. Very glad we visited.
  • the condition of the fort is perfect. Pitty that you can only visit/walk the top part with a guide. so walking around the fort is as good as going inside and the first one is free
