The old harbor of La Rochelle

Picturesque old town, beautiful beaches

La Rochelle is a seaport city located about half-way down the Atlantic coast. It boasts a well-preserved old town, a protected harbor and beautiful beaches. The so-called “white city” enjoyed its greatest prosperity during the period of the Huguenots in the early 17th century. The harbor fortifications stem from that era, as do many of the historical buildings in the town center.
