What to expect

Situated north of Perpignan, the Fortress of Salses is one of the most beautiful architectural jewels of the Pyrenees-Orientales. This military structure, erected between the end of the 15th and the beginning of the 16th century by Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella of Castile, was one of the strongholds that marked the border between France and Catalonia during the reign of the Spanish Catholic kings. Restored in 1691 by Vauban, the fortress of Salses is now managed by the National Monuments Centre, which ensures its protection and conservation.

Would you like to discover this astonishing military building halfway between the medieval castle and the bastion? Book your tickets now on Coupe-File. com (reservation free of charge) and enter the fortress avoiding queues.
