About: Forteresse de Salses

The Forteresse de Salses is a Catalan-built fortress in the commune of Salses-le-Château, in the French département of Pyrénées-Orientales. Built at the end of the 15th century, it guarded the former frontier between Spain and France.

Its layout and architecture is a rare example of the transition between a medieval-style castle and a more modern fortress. Today, it is open to the public and attracts 10,000 visitors every year.

'I want my museum to be a single block, a labyrinth, a great surrealist object. It will be a totally theatrical museum. The people who come to see it will leave with the sensation of having had a theatrical dream.' Dalí got his wish. The Dalí Theatre-Museum – under which the artist himself lies buried – is one of the most surreal and theatrical museums in the world. This unique museum, decorated with giant eggs and fantastical figures, features the largest collection of works by Salvador Dalí, including exclusive items from his personal collection.
