Historic site and monument
The Town Hall
Place de l'Hôtel de Ville
17000 - La Rochelle
Considered as one of the most beautiful town halls in France. This emblematic building of the city contained many works of art such as the tapestries and paintings of Henri IV from the Jean Guitton Cabinet.
On June 28, 2013 at 1:55 pm a serious fire broke out in the building of the City Hall of La Rochelle. Behind its high gothic surrounding wall topped by a belfry tower, this emblematic building of the city held many memories, including those relating to the Headquarters, the Salle des Echevins, the large Salle des Fêtes and the Cabinet Jean Guiton with its legendary marble table. Thanks to the mobilization of firefighters and technical teams of the City of La Rochelle, all the treasures contained in the City Hall were saved from the flames and water. December 2019 marks the reopening of the Town Hall restored to its original state. The 15th century enclosure marks the place where the Mayor and the Aldermen who administered the city sat.
