Unusual tour - Le faste des négociants de La Rochelle au XVIIIe siècle
Place Barentin
17000 - La Rochelle
Accompanied by your tour guide who plays the role of an 18th century merchant's daughter, immerse yourself in the splendor of the bourgeois elite of the time and discover the sumptuous mansions that bear witness to this period.
Suzanne Van Hoogwerff, whose father of Dutch origin built his fortune essentially on the white gold of Santo Domingo (sugar), will guide you. She will reveal her daily life: the meetings in small companies, the role of women, the small arrangements and the strategies to integrate this privileged environment, the entertainment of the time, etc. This until the revolt of the slaves which will lead to many bankruptcies.

The visit will be conducted in costume offering an immersion in the heart of history.
The tour lasts 1 hour and 45 minutes and is for small groups of 20 people maximum.
On reservation.
