Presentation of La Rochelle

A historic city resolutely facing the ocean, La Rochelle is known for its old fortified port, its beautiful Minimes beach in the city centre and its aquarium among the largest in Europe. The city centre is full of historical and architectural treasures: the covered market of the 19th century, still in operation; the arcaded streets; the facades of the private mansions dating from the 15th to the 18th centuries; the surprising Maison Henri II; the large clock of the old city gate; up to the fortified towers of the old port. The religious heritage of La Rochelle is represented by the Saint-Louis Cathedral, the Saint-Barthélemy bell tower and the Saint-Sauveur church. These sites and monuments can be found by walking freely around the city, or by opting for one of the thematic guided tours offered by the tourist office.
