A few ideas for visits to La Rochelle: 

  • The historical town centre and its streets lined with half-timbered, slate-roofed houses and Renaissance facades,
  • The Lanterne Tower, Saint Nicolas Tower and the Chain Tower in the Old Port (14th and 15th centuries),
  • The Town Hall, classified as a Historical Monument,
  • The Grosse Horloge gate, a gothic tower that used to be a fortification and the town's belfry.
  • The Church of Saint Sauveur, classic architectural gem in La Rochelle,
  • The Cathedral of Saint-Louis that recalls the style of Versailles Cathedral and highlights La Rochelle's typical architecture,
  • The Dames Blanches cloister, 17th century convent,
  • La Rochelle market under the 19th century covered marketplace: local produce and authentic atmosphere,
  • The Marans canal, an ideal historical route for a river cruise or bike tourism linking up the Poitevin Marsh to La Rochelle...

 

If you wish to explore every aspect of La Rochelle, you can take a guided tour organised by the tourist office. This will help you find all the most beautiful monuments in La Rochelle. You can even tour the town in a horse and carriage!
