Old Port of La Rochelle
Situated at the rear of a narrow bay, the old fishing port is guarded by two medieval towers, the Chaîne Tower and St Nicolas Tower. This magnificent view inspired artists such as Joseph Vernet, Corot and Signac. Nowadays, the old port has been entirely converted into a marina. Its docks and wharfs are only accessible by pedestrians and bicyclists.
