La Rochelle

Harbour along the Atlantic coast

The harbour of La Rochelle looks out on the Atlantic Coast and has considerably contributed to the wealth of the town from the end of the 15th century and the development of the trade with Canada. From this time, the town has managed to keep beautiful heritage, with refined houses and parks. The old harbour, with its two high towers, is the tourist site of the town. The terraces of the bars and restaurants are lively during the summer and offer you an excellent spot to taste seafood.
