What to see in La Rochelle

La Rochelle, a historic port city on the French Atlantic coast, is a vibrant blend of maritime history, architectural beauty and modern leisure. This enchanting city, with its iconic harbour and towers, offers a variety of experiences that cater to history enthusiasts, nature lovers and those seeking relaxation.

The heart of La Rochelle is its Old Harbour (Vieux Port), an area brimming with history and charm. Stroll along the quays, lined with restaurants and cafes, and soak in the lively atmosphere. The harbour is dominated by three impressive medieval towers, the guardians of the city's rich maritime past. The most notable is Saint Nicholas Tower, which you can climb to enjoy panoramic views of the city and the sea. These towers, once fortifications and prisons, now serve as fascinating museums that delve into La Rochelle’s history as a significant seafaring and trading hub.

One of Europe’s largest private aquariums, La Rochelle Aquarium, is a short walk from the port. This state-of-the-art facility takes you on an immersive journey through the oceans of the world. Home to over 12,000 marine animals, including sharks, jellyfish and tropical fish, the aquarium is both an educational and visually stunning experience. The exhibits are designed to raise awareness about marine conservation, making it an informative visit for all ages. Don’t miss the mesmerising jellyfish room and the opportunity to touch friendly rays in the touch pool.

For those looking to relax and soak up the sun, Minimes Beach is the perfect destination. Located a short distance from the city centre, this sandy beach offers a serene escape from the urban hustle. The beach is well-equipped with amenities and is ideal for swimming, sunbathing and enjoying watersports. The nearby marina, one of the largest in Europe, adds to the nautical charm of the area. The beachfront also features a promenade with cafes and shops, making it a great spot for a leisurely stroll or a seaside meal.
