Visite insolite Journées du Patrimoine - Le faste des négociants de La Rochelle au XVIIIe siècle
Suzanne Van Hoogwerff, daughter of a rich shipowner, accompanies us from one mansion to another, telling us about the daily life of the Rochelais merchants, during a dramatized visit in costume.
Immerse yourself in the daily life and splendor of the 18th century merchant elite of La Rochelle with Suzanne Van Hoogwerff, a merchant's daughter.

From one mansion to another, Suzanne, in costume, will guide you in the footsteps of this merchant elite who made their fortune, like her father, thanks to the white gold of Saint-Domingue: sugar. She will tell you about her daily life, the meetings in small companies, the role of women, the entertainment of the time, the small arrangements and the strategies to integrate this privileged environment.

Growing up in this environment, she knows all the secrets and will share them with you until the slaves' revolt which will lead to many bankruptcies, including that of her family.

Visit of 1h45 in small groups for adults and children over 8 years old.

On reservation, limited number of places. Special rates for the European Heritage Days.
