Forteresse de Salses

Salses, the inland frontier fortress.

Salses fortress was built between 1497 and 1504 by the Spaniards to protect their northern province of Roussillon which was finally conquered by France in 1642. Behind the defensive walls the complex fortress features buildings on three to six levels linked by a maze of corridors and walkways. The fort
incorporates three independent sections: the living quarters, battlements and the keep.
