Overview

La Rochelle, an old fortified city facing the ocean

La Rochelle’s boat-bobbing harbour and arch-covered streets feel more Mediterranean than Atlantic. Medieval defence towers guard the entrance to the Old Port, where diners feast on curried mussels at waterside restaurants. Cross the bridge to Île de Ré for a lazy day on the beach.

About France

In the historic centre, between the arch-covered streets, you can see a large number of graceful timber-framed or sculpted houses from the 15th to the 18th centuries.

Don’t miss the visit of one of the most beautiful Town Hall in France, dating back from the Renaissance period, where you can learn the history of the city. Have a closer look to the Medieval defence towers which can be explored and to the imposing "Grosse Horloge" from the 14th century: old gate in the ramparts located between the port and the city.

Facing the old port, the Aquarium will immerse you into the fascinating world of the ocean.
