Fort de Salses
Fort de Salses Review
The colossal, well-preserved Fort de Salses was built by Ferdinand of Aragon between 1497 and 1504. Equipped to accommodate 300 horses and 1,500 soldiers, it finally fell to the French under Cardinal Richelieu in 1642 after three sieges. Bulky round towers ring the rectangular inner fort, and the four-story keep, with its narrow corridors, was designed to protect the fort's governor to the bitter end.
