Vieux Port

Facing the Atlantic Ocean, the towers are the remains of a major fortification programme built from the 12th century onwards by the City of La Rochelle. All year round, the towers host exhibitions and events.

SAINT NICOLAS TOWER :
A true urban keep and palatial residence facing the ocean, this military building symbolizes the power and wealth of La Rochelle. 42 meters high, its architecture is based on a labyrinth of stairs and corridors built into the thickness of the walls.

TOWER OF THE CHAIN :
Gateway to the Old Port, the Chain Tower monitored the movement of boats, the traffic of the port and collected duties and taxes. The Tower regularly hosts temporary exhibitions. Until May 3, 2021: "C'est arrivé demain" (It happened tomorrow) Explore the universe of science fiction comics through innovative installations!

TOUR DE LA LANTERNE (Dite des 4 sergents):
The last medieval lighthouse on the Atlantic coast, 55 metres high, topped by an octagonal gothic spire, the tower served throughout its history as a lighthouse and prison. It contains more than 600 graffiti sculpted by prisoners over 3 centuries.
