The conventual buildings now house the agglomeration community. Every summer, the cloister is used as an exhibition space.
The Récollets, Franciscan monks who settled in La Rochelle in 1629, built a vast convent stretching from the Maubec canal to the present rue Amelot. Their church, burnt down in 1705 and rebuilt the following year, was bought by the Protestants after the Revolution to establish their temple. The cloister and the rest of the monastery became the convent of the White Ladies. In 1988, the City of La Rochelle bought the convent, then the Communauté d'Agglomération integrated its premises. In summer, the cloister is used as an exhibition space.
