Default Salses Fortress

The Forteress de Salses is a classic example of military architecture. The fort was built for Spain's catholic king, Ferdinand II of Aragon at the end of the 15th century (between 1497 and 1502). In its heyday it was used to guard the then French/Spanish border. It is now in French territory and is situated 17 km north of Perpignan.

Unfortunately, as it is in France, it was shut at lunchtime which was when I arrived - so I enjoyed the sun and wandered round the exterior at my leisure.

Dyane,

very nice and interesting shots.
It remembers me a little bit about the fortress on the Ile D'Yeu.

Cheers,

Stefan
