About this activity
Visit: Fortress of Salses, 66600 Salses-Le-Chateau France

Make your own way to the Fortress of Salses near Perpignan and use your pre-paid ticket to skip the line and enjoy priority access. Once inside, set out on a self-guided tour and spend as long as you like exploring the magnificent castle.

During your visit, learn how the fortress was built by the great Spanish architect Francisco Ramiro Lopez in the late 15th century, thanks to its strategic defensive position between Catalonia and France. Hear how it was besieged, captured and recaptured in 1503, 1639, and 1640, before being definitively taken by the French in 1642. You'll also discover how Salses lost its strategic role and importance after the Treaty of the Pyrenees in 1659 redefined the borders.

Behind the defensive walls the fortress complex features buildings on three to six levels, linked by a maze of corridors and walkways. Your ticket allows you to explore the living quarters, battlements, and the keep.
