In the XVII° century the Récollets, Franciscans who settled in La Rochelle after the Great Siege of 1628 built their convent from a large parcel of land. After the Revolution the "Dames Blanches", a women's religious order settled in the convent. In 1988 the town bought the convent and later on the Communauté d'Agglomération moved there. In summer the cloister is an exhibition gallery.
