The Salazar Castle

The Salazar Castle

The Salazar Castle (in Spanish: "Castillo Salazar") is an ancestral castle that is both an enormous fortified stronghold and a monastery complex, located just outside the gates to the Spanish town of El Pueblo and it is not only owned by its 8th Castellan Ramon Salazar, but the castle also now served as the spiritual base of the religious cult known as the Los Illuminados. It is a location in Resident Evil 4.

Leon S. Kennedy and Ashley Graham both escaped from the village and into the castle while attempting to evade a large horde of pursuing enemies.

Beneath its great foundation, the Las Plagas have remained in fossil form for centuries until they were recently mined and set upon the innocent villagers of El Pueblo.

Within its walls hides both an opulent palace and a number of horrific deathtraps. Many rooms within the castle house menacing creatures, such as Novistadors and Armadura.

Areas of interest include an extensive hedge maze filled with Salazar's Colmillos "pets", many large towers, including one that houses a gigantic statue of Salazar himself, and an extensive sewer and cave system, housing some of the castellan's Novistador insects.

The most common enemies of the castle are the Zealots, the fanatic devotees of the Los Iluminados in the cult's ceremonial robes. They are armed with flails and occasionally scythes. Further into the castle you will eventually reach the Plaga Mines, where you meet up with some familiar foes. Among the many sub-bosses in the castle include Armadura, Garradors, Los Illuminados' Cultist Leaders, and Chainsaw Men. Bosses include Salazar's "right hand" Verdugo, Twin El Gigantes, and finally Salazar himself. Villagers aree also, alongside Chainsaw Men, are seen in the Castle's underground area and mines. The Salazar Family had ownership of this Castle and used it formally to seal off Las Plagas, Ramon Salazar though become the Castle's owner and allowed Lord Osmund Saddler and the Los Illumanidos to dig up the parasites, setting the events in 2004 in motion.
