Aerial Photography | Castles in South of France

In this episode, we visit Forteresse de Salses for some drone photography of a unique French castle.

I make my way into the mountains for a day of travel photography with some of the best castles I have ever laid my eyes on.

Part one of the journey begins with an outline of the gear. Then we progress past the Mediterranean sea and onto castle number one for the day: Forteresse de Salses. Here I took some of the most fantastic aerial cinematography I have seen to date.

This video is part one. I had to split it due to the amount of content that came out of this day. Trust me they are worth a watch 🙂

Check out the video below.

About Forteresse de Salses:

The Fort de Salses (also called Forteresse de Salses) is a Catalan fortress in the commune of Salses-le-Château, situated in the French département of Pyrénées-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 a medieval castle and the fortresses of the modern period.
The fort was captured by the French in 1642, and remained French since the Treaty of the Pyrenees.
