    What to Expect
    Visit: Towers of La Rochelle, Vieux Port Vieux Port, Quai Duperre, 17000, La Rochelle France

    Looking out to the Atlantic, the Tour Saint-Nicolas (14th century), the Tour de la Chaîne (14th century) and the Tour de la Lanterne

    (12th and15th century) are the remains of a great fortification building campaign undertaken in the City of La Rochelle from 1199.

    The “Tour Saint Nicolas” and “Tour de la Chaine” form the majestic gateway to the Old Port and for ten centuries formed the key defensive bastions to the city. As true palatial constructions and city castles, they are the symbol of a city with a very rich hand proud seafaring and trading heritage.

    The Tour de la Lanterne, the oldest lighthouse on the Atlantic coast and then a navy prison, contains over 600 examples of

    graffiti carved into the walls by prisoners in over 3 centuries.

    Bought tickets in advance, worth it for the queue skipping. Great views from the top. The only issue was the tight staircases and having to give way to people. Otherwise, well worth a visit.
