Photographer's Note

The Fort de Salses (also called Forteresse de Salses) is a Catalan fortress in the commune of Salses-le-Chteau, situated in the French dpartement of Pyrnes-Orientales. It is clearly visible from the A9 autoroute and it is possible to visit from the motorway rest area.
Built by the Spaniards at the end of the 15th century, the fortress guarded the former frontier between Spain and France. Its layout and architecture, innovative for the time, present a rare example of the transition between medieval castle and the fortresses of the modern period
