La Rochelle Vieux Port (Old Port)

The Vieux Port is the town’s historic harbour, and has become world-famous thanks to the two medieval towers guarding the entrance. La Rochelle gained much importance during the Hundred Years War, then with the discovery of America.

The fame of these towers- the remains of successive sieges of the town and its proud guardians- is such that they need no introduction; they bear witness to La Rochelle’s authority since the Middle Ages.
